Freedman Jazz finalists: Flower, Jayaweera, Hannaford, Rose

The Freedman Jazz Fellowship finalists for 2013 have been announced and include one of Australia's most exciting pianists, Marc Hannaford; the New York-based drummer Rajiv Jayaweera; Sydney-based guitarist (and winner of the 2007 National Jazz Guitar Awards) Aaron Flower; and saxophonist Jeremy Rose (the 2009 winner of the Bell Award for Young Australian Jazz Artist of the Year).

The four finalists and their bands will compete for the $15,000 fellowships in a concert at the Sydney Opera House Studio on 5 August.

Inaugurated in 2001, the Freedman Music Fellowships are administered by the Music Council of Australia and offer a unique opportunity for some of Australia's most talented musicians to further their careers internationally. There are two yearly prizes, one for a jazz musician, and one for a classical musician. The judges for 2013 Freedman Jazz Fellowship are Andrew Robson, Tim Firth, and Alister Spence.
