Scone High School student and Vice Captain Trinity Preston have been awarded the 2022 David Laurence Scholarship for Advancement of Artists. The scholarship will provide 18-year-old Preston, who has just completed HSC, with free private audio lessons for 2022 covering vocal technology, theatrical crafts, acting, language training and professional development. Ms. Preston said she felt honored to have been selected for the 2022 scholarship. “Coming from a small town and applying for this international scholarship, I never thought I could compete,” said Preston. “I couldn’t be happier as this scholarship helps me reach my future goals and pursue my innate talent for singing.” Ms Preston will also be mentored by new mentor and scholarship organizer Livia Brach, an Australian operatic soprano based in Germany. Brasch said Preston was already on the “path to stardom”. “At the age of 15, she had already won open singing competitions, and by the age of 16, her original song ‘Give Me a Name’ (which she recorded with Australian Idol winner Damien Leith) was broadcast on Power FM,” said Ms Brach. The David Lawrence Scholarship was created in honor of Mrs. Brash’s late father, Dr. David Lawrence “Larry” Brash, and aims to promote access to high-quality music education and support talented developing artists to reach their full potential.
