This is the most prestigious jazz competition in the country (2012 for vocalist only).

They will perform at Wangaratta Festival with an outstanding band : Sam Keevers (piano), Sam Anning (bass) and Raj Jayaweera (drums). Three finalists will be chosen to perform in the final round, from 5pm on Sunday 4 November in the WPAC Theatre.

The Margaret Sutherland Bursary Recital, 2012
In August Melbourne’s Lyceum Club played host to the annual Margaret Sutherland bursary competition, where music students from Monash University and the University of Melbourne vie for a bursary. This year’s event was won by Monash’s Edward Antonov, a violin student who is currently undertaking, on scholarship, a research Masters degree in performance. Accompanied by pianist Elyane Laussade, Edward performed the first movement of Beethoven’s Violin Sonata no 8, Fritz Kreisler’s crowd pleaser, Tambourin Chinois and Margaret Sutherland’s Nocturne.
James ‘Larry” Carter – releases new CD
Alumni – James Carter was trained in the tradition of Jazz and Improvised music at Monash University – School of Music. His debut album ‘After All’ was recorded in October 2011 at Newmarket Studios, mixed and mastered by Philip Rex and distributed through Newmarket music. The majority of the material was composed by James Carter as a suite after a period of study in New York City, and could be likened to a song cycle in classical music or a concept album in popular music.
Featuring Monash University graduates James ‘Larry’ Carter on alto saxophone, Christian Meyer on guitar, Daniel Sheehan on piano and Ben Christensen on double bass, the group is made up of young musicians who are beginning to make an impact on the Melbourne music scene. The album launch at Bennetts Lane will feature special guests James Gilligan on electric bass and vocalist Mariel Koroibulu.
