Music Scholarship Opportunities at Ellesmere College

Ellesmere College is offering the opportunity for two talented musicians to continue in to their Sixth Form education with the aid of Music scholarships that are funded by two families associated with the College.

The Mullock Arts Scholarship and the Walker Music Scholarship are now looking for applications for September 2018. Donated by two families, with a passion for education and love of the Arts, these scholarships have made it possible for five students to achieve outstanding academic results and receive world-class music tutoring in the nurturing environment of Ellesmere College.

The Walker Music Scholarship has been presented by the Walker family for the past four years after their daughter came through the College Sixth Form on a Music Scholarship and is now a Music teacher herself. Mr and Mrs Walker wanted to give something back to the College as a thank you for the education of their own children – Rachael and Edward – and to offer another student the same opportunities they were given.

Mr and Mrs Walker said of the scholarship, “We are now very pleased to be able to create a scholarship to help other talented young musicians. We are kept up to date with our student’s achievements and it’s rewarding to see them make progress and gain confidence to take them forward to the next stage of their life.”

The Mullock Arts Scholarship has supported three students through Ellesmere so far and is presented by Mr & Mrs Mullock who wanted their love of the Arts to be passed on to the next generation. They created a scholarship that supports students with particular music talents through their Sixth Form time at the College and encourages those students from all academic backgrounds to apply.

David commented, “We cannot tell you how much pleasure we have had from funding our three previous ‘Mullock scholars’ – Nia, Beatrice and Elan. Our on-going friendship with them and their families is a delight.”

Elan Roberts, a Mullock Scholar said, “David and Robyn Mullock provided me with an opportunity I never thought was possible. Ellesmere is a very special place and I have been able to achieve outstanding A Level results whilst being part of an award winning choir with access to first class voice coaching.” Elan is now studying music at the University of Liverpool.

The Ellesmere College Chamber Choir has recently appeared on the BBC Songs of Praise Young Choir of the Year competition on BBC 1, has achieved outstanding success at the Oswestry and Chester Music Festivals, and toured Italy singing in prestigious venues such as The Vatican and Pantheon.
