    This year Kahn & Averill has elected to donate £750.00 from the Morris Kahn Memorial Fund towards a bursary at the Yehudi Menuhin School in Cobham to coincide with the Menuhin 100 celebrations.Morris was a competent violinist and was encouraged by his family, who were also musical. According to his fellow string quartet players, he occasionally lapsed into the rather irritating habit of counting out aloud! As publisher of the Yehudi Menuhin Music Guides, we are sure that he would have approved of this donation helping talented young string players who otherwise would not necessarily have the resources to attend a school of such international standing. Last year the Morris Kahn Memorial Fund donated funds to Help Musicians. His obituary can be read here.
