The Foveaux Harmony Chorus / Invercargill Licencing Trust scholarship is awarded to female singers aged between 13 and 25 and is intended to help further their singing career.
The scholarship was awarded at our Christmas show on 9 December 2018 and the recipient was Jenesis Petallana, pictured below with adjudicator, Nathan Hughes.
We asked Jenesis to tell us a bit about herself:
“I have been involved in all school productions, Rockquest, Foveaux Harmony 2015, NZ Golden Guitars (won gospel section in 2018), musical workshops, my school choir, A & P solo performer, Civic Theatre’s ‘Stars In Your Eyes’ and school variety shows.
I will be attending the University of Canterbury in 2019 to study law and music. I have loved singing ever since I was little and my biggest influencers would be my parents. “
