Successful Irish Heritage Bursary Auditions at Wigmore Hall
Congratulations to former pupil Ellen Mawhinney who has just won a prestigious bursary in the world of music.
Bursaries with a combined value of over £10,000 were at stake when 12 very talented Irish musicians and singers met in the elegant surroundings of the Wigmore Hall in London for the annual Irish Heritage Bursary auditions.
The first Brackaville Bursary for Vocal Studies was awarded to Ellen Mawhinney, from Glengormley, County Antrim who is studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow;
In addition to the prize money, the bursaries also involve valuable performance opportunities in London and at the Black Water Valley Opera Festival where Ellen will perform on the 29th May 2020.
