Fine tun­ing for award

Hills Gazette (Kalamunda) - - NEWS -

YOUNG mu­si­cians from lo­cal high schools wowed hun­dreds of peo­ple dur­ing a fundrais­ing event this month with live per­for­mances of pop­u­lar songs and movie sound­tracks.

Stu­dents from Guild­ford Gram­mar, He­lena Col­lege and Swan View and Eastern Hills high schools show­cased their tal­ents by play­ing tracks from Star Wars and the Bea­tles to Brahms and Chopin.

The con­cert at the Eastern Hills theatre raised more than $2000 for the Robert Ju­niper Award for the Arts.

Ap­pli­ca­tions for the pres­ti­gious award, val­ued up to $9000, close on Septem­ber 30, with the win­ner an­nounced in De­cem­ber.

The award is pre­sented an­nu­ally by the Mun­dar­ing Bi­cen­ten­nial Schol­ar­ship Trust to a young artist up to 35 years old in the Shire of Mun­dar­ing who needs fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance.

Visit mundaringarts. org, or call Trust sec­re­tary Chris Dur­rant on 9299 6093.

Money for the award comes from a con­tri­bu­tion from the Shire of Mun­dar­ing, sup­ple­mented by fundrais­ing events and sub­scrip­tions from Friends of the Trust.
