JAM at Queen’s awarded Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation funding to “unlock hidden talent"
Queen’s Junior Music Academy (JAM) has been successful in the latest round of funding by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, one of Britain’s leading charities supporting the arts and music.
The Foundation has awarded £14,760 to JAM at Queen’s to fund bursaries over the next three years for a new Strings programme. Additional funding has been provided by the Music for All programme to purchase new string instruments.
Welcoming the grant, Professor Adrienne Scullion, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at Queen's University Belfast said: “We are thrilled that our Junior Academy of Music is to be one of the recipients of funding from the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation.
“This grant will enable Queen’s to engage even more with young children through the medium of music and to unlock the great potential for creativity and learning we know exists in our local community.”
