An earlier announcement advised of a proposed Sponsorship Award to encourage the advancement of the musical skills and knowledge of our band members.
I am pleased to advise that the scheme is now operative.
In essence, the scheme –
Is open to any member of Lake Macquarie Winds (with a proviso that an applicant must have established themselves as an active member of the band over a reasonable period of time),
Applications are open until the end of Term 2,
The Music Director, in conjunction with others if required, will determine the successful applicant, and will announce the decision no later than week one of Term 4 (however, the announcement will likely be made much earlier),
The award will be in cash to a maximum of $1,000.00,
It is expected that the award will be spent in furthering the successful applicants musical skills,
It is further expected that the successful applicant will remain an active member of Lake Macquarie Winds for a period of no less than 12 months from the time of the award.
This presents a great opportunity to enhance your music with financial assistance, while enjoying the friendly atmosphere of a vibrant concert band.
This award will also be available in 2017.
