Gwyn Williams Bursary Fund

The Bursary Fund has been set up by Stephannie Williams,  the widow of Gwyn Williams,  dedicated to her husband’s memory and his legacy of profound viola music accomplishment.

Gwyn joined the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) in 1965 under Hugo Rignold followed by Louis Fremaux and was later appointed principal viola by Sir Simon Rattle.

The Fund supports talented young violists at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.
