Bursary Contribution Continues to Hit Right Note

Written by Peter Lynn

Swansea-based law firm, Peter Lynn and Partners have continued their support of the Abertawe Festival for Young Musicians (AFYM) concert by providing a bursary.

The festival, which took place earlier this year in the Taliesin, celebrates the talents of up-and-coming musicians from the local area and the bursary prize is awarded as part of the festivities.

“We have been involved with the AFYM concert for a number of years,” said Peter Lynn, “and are always blown away by the talent of these young musicians.”

Attracting musicians from all over South Wales, the Festival Concert features performers who have been recommended by the adjudicators for such qualities as the excellence of performance or unusual combinations of instruments.

Sonia Gittoes, a committee member with AFYM said, “We are grateful to Peter Lynn and Partners for continuing to provide a bursary and for their ongoing support of the concert.”

This year’s bursary winner was Jonn Esguerra, who will be using the bursary to purchase a new Grade 8 level cello bow.

“Thank you for your generosity and support,” said John. “With the Peter Lynn & Partners bursary, I will be able to pursue my goal of achieving an ARSM Cello diploma and carry on playing at a higher standard of music.”
