林耀基中国音乐基金「洪宗巧筠奖学金」成立

蒙洪宗巧筠女士的慷慨捐助,林耀基中国音乐基金欣然宣布成立「洪宗巧筠奖学金」,以资助有需要的本地及内地的音乐菁英攻读音乐研究生及本科课程。

「洪宗巧筠奖学金」是林耀基中国音乐基金奖学金计划下的重要一环。去年成立的「新世界暑期音乐培训奖学金」,已成功资助数位出色的青年,参加享负盛名的维尔比耶音乐节及海菲兹国际音乐学院夏季课程。其中包括小提琴手钱悦、中提琴手沈子钰及郑展博、以及钢琴家牛牛(张胜亮)。他们都已于国际舞台及音乐比赛中崭露头角,前程无可限量。

洪女士经林耀基中国音乐基金执委会联席主席谭允芝女士介绍,认识到本基金的工作,与洪女士支持优秀音乐人才发展潜能的愿景不谋而合。在洪女士的慷慨捐助下,本基金将运用「洪宗巧筠奖学金」协助有需要的香港及中国内地学生入读所选的音乐学院进修,以开展其音乐事业。

这项慷慨的捐赠亦是向已故的林耀基教授致敬,以表彰他毕生努力不懈的无私奉献,他亲自挑选音乐人才,不论学生背景,为他们的小提琴技术建立扎实的根基,并启发他们对音乐的理解,再为学生寻就找国外进修的机遇,给予学生及其家庭各样的帮助,让爱徒得以展翅高飞。

第一届「洪宗巧筠奖学金」的得主是林耀基教授的最后一位入室弟子袁琛儿。袁氏于于广州出生,五岁起开始学习小提琴,其后以比赛中的优秀表演及对音乐的热情,为她赢取不少省级及全国的小提琴比赛的奖项,以及2010年莫里茨堡音乐节、2012年美国圣多米尼克私立高中学校及旧金山音乐学院预科的全额奖学金。在「洪宗巧筠奖学金」的资助下,袁氏得以于美国纽约市的茱莉亚音乐学院继续她的本科第二年的课程,师从林㯤教授学习,亦能让她偿还本科第一年课程费用的贷款。

袁氏亦通过音乐及行动去治疗破碎的心灵。于2013年,她成为「Children In Need Club」会的主席,通过举行超过二十多场的筹款音乐会,致力帮助全球有需要的儿童,又捐出于大平洋小提琴比赛中夺取冠军所赢得的一千美元奖金,并赴中国河南协助美籍音乐治疗师医治患自闭症的儿童。

「洪宗巧筠奖学金」将按每位申请者个别的经济状况,资助或补贴得奖者所需的学费及住宿费等。有关「洪宗巧筠奖学金」的申请程序及详情将于本年十一月初赛上载于本基金的网站。

Lin Yao Ji Music Foundation of China “Jessica Hung Scholarship” Established

The Lin Yao Ji Music Foundation of China (LYJMFC) is pleased to announce the establishment of the Jessica Hung Scholarship (JHS), which is generously sponsored by Mrs. Jessica Hung in support of local and mainland music talents to pursuing postgraduate and undergraduate studies in music.

The JHS forms a part of the concurrent LYJMFC Scholarship Programs alongside the “New World Scholarship for Summer Studies in Music”which provides full scholarships for awardees to participate in prestigious classical music festival academies such as Verbier Festival and Heifetz International Music Institute. Past scholarship awardees include young music talents such violinist Yue Qian, violists Ziyu Shen and Zhanbo Zheng and pianist Niu Niu (Shengliang Zhang). They are outstanding conservatory students and winners of major instrumental competitions, with promises of bright careers on the international stage.

With a vision shared with LYJMFC to support outstanding talents in their pursuit of the arts, Mrs. Hung is pleased to have been introduced to the Foundation through Ms Winnie Tam, Co-chairman of the executive committee. With Mrs Hung's generous support, the Foundation will be able to assist deserving students from Hong Kong and the mainland China to attend their choice conservatory for further studies with a view to launching a career in music.

The generous donation would be a fitting tribute to the late Professor Lin Yao Ji, who was known for his selfless and tireless efforts in assisting outstanding talents, handpicked by him often from impoverished backgrounds, to build a strong technical foundation in the violin and in the understanding of music, before helping them spread their wings elsewhere.

The first of the recipient of the JHS is Ms. Chener (Cherry) Yuan, a Guangzhou-born violinist and a private student of the late Professor Lin Yao Ji. She started taking the violin lessons at the age of 5, her outstanding performances in violin competitions and passionate in music have won her provincial and national competitions awards and several scholarships including a full scholarship to participate in the 2010 Moritzburg Festival Academy and two full scholarship awards of The San Domenico Upper High School in California and the Preparatory division of San Francisco Conservatory of Music in 2012. The JHS will enable her to carry on with her study as a second year student at the Juilliard School of Music in New York City under Mr Lin Li, and will help repay loans that she had borrowed to enable her to begin her studies there last year.

Cherry also heals broken souls through her performance and actions. In 2013, she became the President of Children In Need Club and dedicated to helping desperate children from around the world by raising money through performing in more than 20 concerts. Besides, she donated to the charity the award of US$1,000 she received as winner of the Pacific Violin Competitions. In a trip to China's Henan province, she assisted a U.S. music therapist to treat autistic children there.

Each JHS scholarship will go towards defraying tuition and accommodation costs, taking into consideration applicants’individual financial circumstances. More information about future applications for the JHS will be made available in November on our website.
