McComish Scholarship for Brass
As part of the Juilliard Jazz School at Trinity, a brass player is awarded the McComish Scholarship for Brass, thanks to the generosity of Mr Bruce McComish. This provides a young musician with the opportunity to spend a day in the studio with renowned Australian trumpet player, James Morrison. In 2012 the scholarship was awarded to Matthew O’Brien, a young trombonist from Adelaide.
'I'd like to personally thank you all for giving me the opportunity to meet, play and record with James Morrison – I had a fantastic time and learnt so much from him.'
