Tait UK

The Trust offers awards/grants for postgraduate study, performance opportunities to young Australian musicians and performing artists and general help in the furtherance of their careers while resident in the UK.

To ensure its continuance the Trust arranges regular fundraising events and concerts, invariably featuring the talented young winners of the various awards, and relies a great deal on financial support from the business sector, private donors and other loyal supporters.

We hope, as they see the important work we do for the young Australians in this highly competitive arts marketplace here, that their very welcome support will continue.  More here
