September 2014 Recipients
Christchurch School of Music received $2,331.07 to purchase a sound system which will improve the quality of its shows, including solo performances, recitals and concerts.
The school provides tuition in practical and theoretical music skills and provides opportunities to study, practice and perform a wide range of music, such as rock and jazz. It also produces several instrumental and choral music concerts, and recitals throughout the year.
The school offers its students financial hardship grants and earthquake scholarships, as it believes musical education should be available to all young people regardless of their financial situation.
This assistance from the Mazda foundation grant means the school will no longer need to hire a sound system and can continue to offer grants and scholarships, along with keeping their fees low cost.
