Aston Lark is delighted to announce our continued support of the Royal College of Music (RCM) scholarship programme.

Our relationship with the RCM goes back to 2012, and we will continue to support two scholars in the 2019-20 academic year. The Aston Lark music scholarship is awarded to outstanding young musicians recommended by the college.

This year, we welcome back violinist Vera Beumer, who performed so memorably for a select group of our clients earlier this year. We also have a new scholar, Italian violist Elena Accogli, who is starting her first year at the college. Both Vera and Elena are studying for a Bachelor of Music (hons).

Vera, who has played the violin since the age of seven, says: ‘I am delighted to be the recipient of the Aston Lark Music scholarship. I now have opportunity to study at one of the leading musical institutes in the world, with excellent professors. I cannot express my gratitude enough for this.’
