Each year the Gunnedah Conservatorium allows students the opportunity to further their music studies through our scholarship program.
Auditions for the scholarship run each year in Term 4 and are designed to allow dedicated students the opportunity to subsidise the cost of their music lessons for the following year. In 2017, seven students were awarded the scholarship.
In addition to receiving the support of the scholarship, recipients are given the opportunity to participate in workshops and performances throughout the year.
The Gunnedah Conservatorium congratulated all its winners. Lucy Robertson, Susannah Bell and Carter Cameron were awarded vocal scholarships; Adam Farquhar and Penny Broekman – piano studies; and Elsie McClenaghan and Patrick Grant – guitar.
Charlotte McDonald received a scholarship for violin, while Olivia Osland received the all-rounder award. The 2016 woodwind recipient Fiona Hogeveen, also took out the 2017 prize.
