    Can’t find any info about 2017. Last year the final was early August. Do you publish the candidates, finalists, date of final??

  2. Yes, we do. If you sign up for Loudmouth ezine (free) below, you will find there a Freedman section with ongoing reports about progress on the Fellowships, the Freedman New Jazz concert series etc.
    Due to a tight schedule at the Sydney Opera House, the Freedman Jazz concert this year will not take place until October 30.
