A letter of thanks to the supporters of the RCM's 2015 Scholarship Program
Dear Music Lovers and RCM Supporters,
On behalf of the Board, Staff and Students of the Riverina Conservatorium of Music, I would like to express our sincere thanks to the many sponsors who have taken up the call to support music education in the Riverina.
On the 25th October 2014, 138 students and their families converged on the RCM's CSU South Campus facility from across the Riverina to audition for the 2015 scholarship program. Some of these students travelled from the far corners of the region to audition with students from Deniliquin, Young, Tumut, Walla Walla and Tumbarumba coming to the RCM to do their best!
The RCM's scholarships are an important tool in that they provide a major motivational goal for young students. For over thirty years the RCM has provided these scholarships to help build the capacity of Riverina music students and to rewards those students who have demonstrated exceptional commitment in their musical studies over the past 12 months. Auditions were held across the RCM's facility and were adjudicated by a panel of highly regarded professional musicians including Graham Sattler from Orange, Grace and Esther Wong from Cootamundra, Tim Adkins from Albury and Vince King from Wagga Wagga.
At the conclusion of the auditions on Saturday night, the RCM awarded over $22,000 worth of Scholarships to Riverina Music students! It is with great pride that every cent of these Scholarships is sponsored by the people of the Riverina!
I would also like to thank the RCM Staff and Board for their amazing work in making the day a great success.
