History

In June 1999, a group of friends formed a committee to celebrate the enormous influence John Rosengren had, during his lifetime, on music and musicians in Wagga Wagga. As a school principal, 'Rosie' was particularly interested in supporting young talented music students. As Musical Director of the Riverina Theatre Company, The Wagga Wagga School of Arts, and the Brewer's Troupe, he was heavily involved with the best musical theatre produced in Wagga Wagga for over twenty-five years.

In June 2000, three concerts were held in the Wagga Wagga Civic Theatre, "The Show of Shows", to showcase highlights from John Rosengren's musical career, with the performances given by his past students, musical pupils, and his musical colleagues. The proceeds from the concert were used to establish "The John Rosengren Scholarship Fund" which provided monetary assistance for school-aged students in the Wagga Wagga Local Government area interested in furthering their musical talents.

From 2001 to 2008, scholarships were presented to many talented students, including pianists, singers, violinists, dancers, trombonists, guitarists, percussionists, etc. The administration of the scholarship fund was passed to the Riverina Conservatorium of Music in 2009.
