First Dubbo Jazz 25 Fund Scholarship to be awarded at Concert

Macquarie Conservatorium Sunday 15 November 2015

DJF-beatDubbo Jazz is pleased to announce that to celebrate our 25th Anniversary, the very first Geoff De la Lande Scholarship  will be awarded at the Macquarie Conservatorium Annual Awards Concert on Sunday 15 November at 4pm at the Conservatorium, corner of Bultje and darling St Dubbo.

The scholarship is jointly sponsored with assistance of  Colour Copy Shop in Dubbo and has been established in honour of Geoff De la Lande. Dubbo Jazz Club Inc was formed in late 1990 by a small group of enthusiasts, driven by Dr. Stephen Jewell, Geoff De La Lande and Warwick Blowes. Geoff, an avid trombonist ,was the first club president, a position he held for six years and he was also a sponsor  for ten years. Geoff passed away in 2103.

The scholarship one of many offered by the Conservatorium is  to support the tuition of a brass or other player with a willingness to play jazz music in Dubbo, evidenced through existing membership of a jazz group, jazz ensemble or big band, and/or a developing interest and potential for jazz, plus ability and commitment to his/her instrument.

Concert tickets are $25 family of 4, $10 for adults and $5 students and can be obtained at the office on 02 6884 6686 or
