We are delighted to welcome our first Agar Ambassadors for 2023, whom we have supported over a number of years and who are now studying music in various institutions of higher education.  You can read their profiles here.  To hear previous Ambassadors discussing their lives with music, and the critical influences which encouraged them, visit our YouTube channel.

Great news that the Agar Trust is giving young musicians the support to make that journey for their music making.
Best wishes to the Trust and to all the award winners.

Creating music is one of life’s greatest joys. Get on that bus and go for it.

There are huge numbers of talented young musicians in rural Scotland who face enormous challenges to the development of that talent.
