The Aims of the Margam Abbey Music Foundation.
To make the Abbey church a venue for performances by young people.
To provide financial resources, through the Trust Fund, to enable young musicians
to develop the vocal and instrumental talents.
To help promote the professional development of young performers.
To ensure the Abbey’s organ continues to be kept in sound condition to meet the needs
of the worship of God and is a suitable instrument for recital and concert purposes.
To offer financial help and performance opportunities to young musicians of outstanding
ability and to promote concerts of high quality in the splendid setting of the Abbey.
Since its inception the aims of the above organisation have resulted in the complete
restoration of the Abbey’s organ and the purchase of a Yamaha grand piano. Recitals
have been given by Huw Tregellis Williams, Wayne Marshall, Carlo Curley, Peter King
(who gave the opening recital in June 1994 after the restoration of the organ had
been completed), Rhodri Clarke, Gary Preston and Faye Gossedge.
