Yaltah Menuhin Memorial Fund
Yaltah's memory has been honoured with a memorial fund* in her name. The primary objective of the fund is to (help) develop the talents of young pianists who have already given proof of their outstanding musical ability and promise in the practice of their art, by means of awards and bursaries.
The distinguished French pianist, Cécile Ousset, is Honorary Patron of the Yaltah Menuhin Memorial Fund.
In addition to providing several bursaries anonymously, the Fund is closely allied with the Artscape National Youth Music Competition, which ranks as one of Africa's most prestigious competitions. The Competition is open to pianists and other instrumentalists between the ages of 14 and 19 and is held annually in Cape Town. The Yaltah Menuhin Award - a cash prize and medal - is given annually to the best pianist at the Competition.
