St Clements Anglican Church, Sunday 13th October at 2.00pm

Yass Music Club presents the annual GOLD COIN CONCERT in which young performers demonstrate their prodigious talents to the public.

This short concert will be held in the St Clements Anglican Church next Sunday at 2.00pm and the fee for entry is a mere gold coin.

There must be few better ways to spend a pleasant and inspiring hour on a Sunday afternoon than listening to these wonderful people doing what they love to do.

The scholars who will perform are: Geena Elliot (voice), Corinne Green (saxophone). Niamh Kelly (piano), Wendy Morton (piano), Tiernan Roberts (guitar) and Becky Wright (piano). The pieces they will play vary from classical to popular music.

Each year the Yass Music Club awards several RAG HOLMES SCHOLARSHIPS to school students in the district who show promise as performers in the field of music. Past and present performers have included pianists – classical and pop, violinists, singers, clarinettists, guitarists, saxophonists – and the variety of musical genres has been exciting.

Many of our scholarship holders have gone on to successful musical careers; this may be your chance to see a future star in the making.

The funds for the scholarship are provided by The Glenlothian Educational Trust, which is managed by the Rotary Club of Yass, and the funds are made available on an annual basis. The Yass Music Club is grateful to the Yass Rotary Club for providing this practical contribution towards the memory of Dr Rag Holmes, a founder of the Music Club.




Dr RAG Holmes Yass Music Club Scholarship Policy

The purpose of the Dr RAG Holmes Yass Music Club scholarship scheme is to give financial support to young Yass and district students through music education.
To qualify for the scheme the applicant should be:
• a resident of Yass and district;
• in year 10, 11 or 12; and
• actively involved in music education.
If the number of applications is low, students in year 9 may be considered.
To receive a scholarship students must agree to:
• inform the club how the funds are to be used;
• participate in a Gold Coin concert arranged by the club;
• attend a concert to receive the Certificate of Participation; and
• support club activities.
Year 9 (if applicable), 10 and 11 students who fulfil all the requirements of the scholarship scheme will progress into the next year of the scholarship.
If a student does not comply with the scholarship requirements, future funding may be withdrawn or a new application may be requested for the following year.
The financing of the Yass Music Club scholarship scheme is dependent on the Glenlothian Education Fund so the amount each student receives may fluctuate. However, the club will endeavour to allocate all the funds granted to the Yass Music Club between the successful applicants.
Students in years 11 or 12 will generally receive more than other students.
