The Radford Charitable Trust maintains a library of orchestral musical instruments, which are available for loan to students in Cornwall. Loans periods are a maximum of 3 years, and the loan is free of charge. Instruments are insured by the Trust. We seek to replace an aging Cor Anglais which is in near constant use, and also provide more cellos and double basses for loan. The large and/or rarer instruments are expensive to purchase and are often out of budgetary reach of families in Cornwall. The Trust aims to provide these instruments so that talented young people can continue their musical journey and families can have more time to seek funds for an instrument of the student’s own.
Voting is now open for the Calor Rural Community Fund projects. We would like to raise £5000 to buy a Cor Anglais, a cello and a double bass for our instrument lending library.
Please vote for us on Facebook! We need to get lots of votes to win the funding which would have a wonderful impact on the lives of some young musicians in Cornwall.
