The John Thorpe Trust

SThe Friends of Gwynedd Youth Music are a group of parents and friends who aim to support young musicians up to the age of 25. Much of our activities support the orchestras and bands run by the Gwasanaeth Ysgolion William Mathias (Schools’ Music Service). We raise funds through a range of initiatives.

The Thursday Friends give their time and care to the youngest musicians on Thursdays at Ysgol Tryfan, from 4-5.30pm. The Thursday Friends are actively recruiting more assistants, so please let them know if you can lend a hand.

John Thorpe Trust fund grant for 2017

It has been decided to award the John Thorpe Trust fund grant for 2017 to Gwasanaeth Ysgolion William Mathias to enable the service to send 4 county bands to the National Eisteddfod, which is taking place on Anglesey this year. This will support a very large number of Anglesey and Gwynedd’s young musicians, and give them the opportunity to perform and represent the county music service on a National stage.
