The Tait Memorial Trust Profile

The Tait Memorial Trust was formed in 1992 by Isla Baring in memory of her father Sir Frank Tait and his four brothers who played such an important part in the establishment of theatre and the performing arts in Australia. It also recognises with an annual award the major contribution of Viola, Lady Tait - who died in 2002 - as a founding patron of the Trust.

The Trust offers awards/grants for postgraduate study, performance opportunities to young Australian musicians and performing artists, and general help in the furtherance of their careers while resident in the UK.

The Trust has helped many young singers and instrumentalists who have subsequently performed with British orchestras and in leading opera houses, including Li-Wei, Liane Keegan, Benjamin Bayl, William Chen, Natalie Christie, Grant Doyle, Leslie John Flanagan, Julian Gavin and Joanna Cole.

Through the Royal Over-Seas League it grants a scholarship to 'the Australian musician showing the most promise' in the Annual Music Competition. The Trust also grants a prize to the winner of Opera Foundation Australia's Covent Garden National Opera Studio Scholarship, and to a finalist in the Mietta Song Recital Award in Melbourne.

To ensure its continuance the Trust arranges regular fund raising events and concerts, invariably featuring the talented young winners of the various awards, and relies a great deal on financial support from the business sector, private donors and other loyal supporters.
