St Cecilia Youth Music Scholarships provide assistance to young musicians in the South Coast, and Rotary Batemans Bay will make an annual grant of $1,000 to the Eurobodalla St Cecilia Music Scholarships.
The annual grant will provide a scholarship of $1000 to a St Cecilia participant proceeding to tertiary music studies. The Scholarship will be known as the David Harding Tertiary Music Award in honour of David's many years of leadership as President of the St Cecilia Music Scholarships and his work as a Rotarian in support of youth.
Rotary allows ordinary people to achieve extraordinary things. And this has certainly been the case with their generous award of the annual Dave Harding Tertiary Music Award.
The first David Harding Award has been awarded to Chloe Watts, a past participant in the annual St Cecilia Music Scholarship program. Chloe completed her HSC at St Peters College in 2016 and this year commenced a Bachelor of Music Degree at the Sydney Conservatorium.
In addition to the David Harding Tertiary Music Award, this year the St Cecilia Scholarship Committee granted a scholarship of $1,000 to Johanna Eltherington, who was the winner of the Senior Contemporary category in 2017. Johanna studied at Carroll College and has commenced a Bachelor of Music degree at the Australian Institute of Music in Sydney. Johanna is aiming for a career in Musical Theatre and film.
