Peter Appleyard Award



2017 Peter Appleyard Scholarship presented at the Old Mill Toronto

On Wednesday, May 17, right before Sophie Milman took to the stage at the Old Mill Toronto, the annual Peter Appleyard Scholarship was presented to this year’s deserving recipient, Jillana Nickel.
Jillana, a  vibraphonist and percussionist originally from British Colombia, is a student in the Humber jazz program, where she studies with the legendary Don Thompson. On hand to present  the scholarship were JAZZ.FM91 Board Chairman, Bernie Webber, as well as Peter Appleyard Jr., who spoke eloquently about his father’s legacy, Jillana Nickel’s amazing musicianship and the importance of JAZZ.FM91 as a major supporter of jazz in Canada.
Congratulations, Jillana!
