A report on the AGM: everything on track for the 2016 Festival
Congratulations to Doug Kuhn, newly elected President of the Castlemaine Jazz Festival Committee. The other Committee members are Brett Willis, Vice President, Col Garrett, John Hannah, meself, Kirsten Boerema, Fran Sylvester, and Linda Carpenter: so a better representation from Castlemaine at last. Particular props to John Hannah for holding the home town fort for a third year, and to Gentleman John Curtis, who cunningly declines to be on the Committee, but contributes as much, if not more, than any other volunteer.
This year’s Festival was 40% bigger than the first year, and returned $60 plus registration fee to each of the 280 or so musicians who played.
