The violist Jean Middlemiss died in February 2020 and left a bequest to The Robert Anderson Trust.
The Trustees agreed to inaugurate a ‘Jean Middlemiss Award’ to support the studies of a violist at the Royal College of Music (RCM).
The first recipient of the award, for the 2021-2 academic year, was Elena Accogli, a third-year Bachelor of Music student.
The Trust supports young musicians and other students with accommodation, fees and access to instruments.
