60th Anniversary Diamond Music Awards

As part of the 60th Anniversary of Tonbridge Music Club it launched the TMC Diamond Music Awards, supporting local young musicians aged 5-18 years to achieve their musical potential.

Promoting young musical talent is central to our charity’s mission, and after the past two years when so many opportunities for young people were severely restricted, these awards felt even more important.

The awards consist of 8 financial grants:

    • one grant of £600
    • one grant of £300
    • six grants of £100

Grants are to be put towards musical costs, such as the purchase of an instrument, instrumental or singing lessons, sheet music, ensemble membership fees, concert tickets etc…

Applications were invited from young people at any stage of their musical life, whether just starting out or becoming an established musician.

The deadline for applications was 31st July. Awards winners will be selected by a panel of TMC Trustees and local professional musicians and notified by 31st August 2022. Winners and their parents/carers will be invited to attend a special presentation by superstar trumpeter Alison Balsom at the first concert of our 60th Anniversary season on Saturday 15th October at Tonbridge School.

Applications are now closed
