STwo Blackburn High School students were judged in the best six solo performers in Australia at the recent Generations in Jazz Festival, held in Mt Gambia.

4,700 music students from 125 state and private schools compete at this prestigious event so to be judged in the best 6 soloists is exceptional.

Given the quality of the completion at this Festival Benji’s and James’ s achievement is  remarkable.

Benji Sametz, playing trumpet  and James Heaney,playing piano have been judged as stars in the making and we look forward to following their progress throughout their careers.
