Davison Young Musician Foundation

The Davison Young Musicians Award was established in March 2021 by Tom and Peter Davison, to provide opportunity for aspiring young musicians to showcase their talent and win an award to assist them with their studies in music. 

The DYMA was made up of a group of philanthropists including Duncan Lustig-Prean who took on the mantle of patron of the DYMA and was keen to support young musicians from State Secondary and 6th form institutes where lack of funding or financial disadvantage was prevalent, especially during COVID-19.

New College has collaborated with the DYMF to provide a Recital Awards to students studying at the University of Oxford. Auditions take place twice a year, and students are awarded a monetary award and the opportunity to perform a recital at the New Space.
