Anna Michels BMus, Piano & Music Theory, Maastricht Conservatoire, Netherlands The Cross Trust has supported my studies in music in Maastricht. Being immersed in such a cosmopolitan culture whilst studying under some of the best musicians in Europe, is hugely inspiring to both my musical and personal development. I’m so grateful to experience success in both national and international competitions, selected for international masterclass, undertaking recording work, playing a concerto with orchestra, and performing my own music theatre production. None of these things would have been possible without the generosity of The Cross Trust. Thank you.
