The Chris Treglown Foundation Fund is set up in memory of a most talented Cornish singer born in St.Minver, North Cornwall in 1988.

In 2012 Chris was tragically killed in a car accident in memory of Chris, and all that he could have been, this is Fund is for You! Chris would have wished

Chris’s parents understand the difficulties young singers face when trying to showcase themselves and further their talents, especially in the worlds of classical and musical theatre

Chris, himself, had to leave his beloved Cornwall and travel to Gloucestershire to follow his dream

As Chris’s parents we’re only too aware of the challenges facing young singers, both in gaining actual experience to showcase their talents and to develop new and appropriate skills in the worlds of classical and musical theatre. With this in mind - The Chris Treglown Fund - is intended to act as a valuable resource for aspiring singers between the ages of 16 and 26

Through the very kind and generous donation of funds, we’re able help similarly talented young people to develop their singing skills, capacities and capabilities.

This funding is in the form of an Award and is designed to assist the students to:

- pursue their musical education

- purchase necessary educational materials

- participate in activities which will help achieve their optimum musical performance levels

The Award is intended to act as a valuable resource for talented singers between the ages of 16 and 26 

This year £1000 per recipient will be made available for:

-costs toward singing lessons

-purchase of sheet music and related books

-attendance fee and/or travel costs for musical workshops and masterclasses

-costs toward audition attendance

-costs toward college tuition fees

This year this amount will be awarded to two applicants - one from Cornwall and one from MJ-UK Music and Arts based in Gloucestershire. MJ-UK Music & Arts is where Chris was developing his singing and performance skills

The Chris Treglown Foundation Fund reserves the right to determine how this sum will be divided

As well as supporting the young singers and providing opportunities for youngsters to sing and perform, the Fund is donating money to support the Cornwall Youth Choirs with all the work they do.

The Advisors for the award are: Julia Treglown, Maria Jagusz, John Baxter, Barry Farley
