The winner of the Scholarship for 2018 was announced this year on Sunday 9th September at our annual band day at Valentine Public School.

We were fortunate, once again, to have the local Member of the NSW Government, Yasmin Catley, present the award.

The successful applicant was Giles Reading, a talented Alto Saxophone player with the band.

Giles progressed his music studies and capabilities through the year, has been a regular at rehearsals and performances, and is a valuable member of the ensemble.


We are lucky to have a number of young players with the skills and determination to challenge for this award. They form a competitive field.

Funds are available to continue the Scholarship scheme next year and, with a small addition to funding, in 2020 as well.
