For me, as a young musician, travel (until the recent coronavirus lockdown!) has become an increasingly valuable - and indeed essential - part of musical learning and life. Participating in masterclasses, courses and competitions in Europe and beyond, has taught me things I could never have learned in a regular practice environment.
I am incredibly grateful for the support I have received from The Cross Trust. This has enabled me to explore and to experience a broader musical culture. During my travels, I received many spontaneous concert opportunities which allowed me to share music with audiences in some fabulous venues.
