Neil Andrews received the Allan Crane Award, given to an outstanding music student pursuing post-secondary music studies. This award is not given annually. Andrews is currently working towards a master's degree in trumpet performance.

Soprano Stephanie Schweig-hardt, who received the highest grade from the CRS scholarship adjudicators, was awarded the Ross Brougham Scholarship. Simon Gidora, violin, received a scholarship in memory of the late Betty Van Uffel, a long-time CRS subscriber.

The other recipients were: Delia Anderson, Nadia Behji, Nima Behji, Anneka Bonser, Maya Broeke, Emily Butler, Gabriel Crudele, Hanna Crudele, James Flemming, Brison Geue, Ethan Geue, Arianna Mason, Rowan McEwen, Esmé McLaughlin Brooks, Bela Ord, Breanna Picard, Emily Picard, Angelo Pinsonnault, Ruby Riesco, Julie Shibasaka and Mina Shibasaka.

In addition, four CRS Adju-dicator's Choice Awards were awarded as part of this year's SC Festival of the Performing Arts. CRS scholarships are funded from the sale of CDs at CRS concerts and from the proceeds from unused CRS tickets returned for resale.

The members of the CRS scholarship committee are: Elise Buqué, Nina Haedrich, Kathleen Hovey, Wendy Humphreys Tebbutt and Frances Wainwright.

CRS scholarships applications are accepted in February of each year and are open to Sunshine Coast students, 25 years or younger, who are studying classical music. More information is available on the CRS website
