We are delighted to announce the names of the first five recipients of our inaugural Camerata 360° Ruth Sutton Fellowship. Created with the generous support of The Ruth Sutton Trust for Music.
Jane Farworth, daughter of Ruth Sutton had this to say about this year’s applicants:
“The Ruth Sutton Trust for Music are delighted and very proud to welcome our first year of fellows to the Manchester Camerata 360 programme. The number and quality of all the applicants showcases and highlights the musical skill and dedication we have here in the North of England. The five fellows are not only exceptional musicians; they have been chosen for their versatility, communication skills and their passion for creativity. My late Mother, Ruth Sutton, was very dedicated to helping young musicians and took a keen interest in their personal development. She would be exceptionally proud to be able to provide this wonderful opportunity that will give our five fellows a balanced and grounded start to their exciting future ahead.”
Our Creative Director, Samantha McShane says:
“What a team of fellows we have this year! I’m excited to work with and learn from this group of creative minds throughout the year and see the benefits and impact our fellowship can make. We are incredibly thankful to the continued support of the Ruth Sutton Trust for Music who share our vision for this programme and who we look forward to working with throughout this coming year.”
