"The money that I have received from the Jennifer Skellett Postgraduate Bursary is a huge help and encouragement. I conduct a small choir in Bath - The Octet. This often requires a lot of costs that I incur in travel, organisation and adminstration. The choir enable me to further develop my skills as a conductor."
