Forecourt of the Legislative Assembly, lunchtime, Wednesday 5 September 2018
Students and former students of the H music course at ANU will be bringing their dismay at the axeing of funding by the ACT Government in the way musicians know best – by playing their hearts out.
It seems that priorities have changed in secondary school funding, focusing more on community music programs. A casualty is this special bridging program for jazz musicians from years 11 and 12 preparing for entry to ANU and other tertiary music courses.
We have been contacted by some of these concerned students, and will be seeking comment from the ACT Government.
