We are delighted to welcome our first Agar Ambassadors, 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 them 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.
