Anglo Arts City Music Foundation Scholarship
In order to strengthen, encourage and promote artistic professionalism in young Mexican musicians as well as to promote cultural exchange between Mexico and the United Kingdom, Anglo Arts with the Mexican Ministry of Culture and the National Institute of Fine Arts (INBA), have joined forces to offer a scholarship at the City Music Foundation in London for young instrumentalists of great talent and excellence in musical performance in classical music and/or jazz.
City Music Foundation (CMF) provides professional musicians in the early stages of their careers with expert advice, guidance and support to help them to build successful careers in music. We recognise the importance of international experience in the development of young artists’ careers and are proud of the status of London in the musical world. We are therefore keen to share our expertise and our unique professional development programme with talented musicians from across the globe through specially designed bilateral initiatives.
Mexico was the first country selected by CMF for an international scholarship programme for talented musicians as an extension of its established Artist Programme for UK based graduates.
The UK Mexico CMF programme was part of the UK Mexico Dual Year of Culture 2015 and was formally announced during the State Visit of the President of Mexico Señor Enrique Peña Nieto to the UK in February 2015.
