PARASOL FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS
12 Jun 2017
The Gibraltar Academy of Music and Performing Arts is proud to announce the recipients of the Parasol Foundation Scholarships. The Parasol Foundation in collaboration with The Gibraltar Academy of Music and Performing Arts (GAMPA) on behalf of the Ministry of Culture designed this programme to help the next generation of musicians and actors develop and have more teaching contact and prep time.
The Scholarship panel, consisted of local musicians Charlie and Helen Chiappe, Kate Lennane, Christina Fortuna and Julian Felice. After an exciting day of auditions, the panel made their choice in what they described as a “Pool of excellence”
