This is the Jazz Factory’s most prestigious award. Chosen by our trophy day judge, it is announced each year at The Jazz Factory’s annual concert and is presented to the student who demonstrates outstanding ability and promise. The award is named after Hanne’s former neighbour and artistic inspiration Mary-Jo Swanson (1931-1993), who would be so proud of all the students and their achievements. Students who have won the award in the past two years are not eligible.
