After the sudden death of Rob Guest, OBE, in October 2008, and in recognition of his achievements in the musical theatre industry, ANZ & ANZ Trustees established a memorial fund in his honour, to help emerging young performers in musical theatre.
The ANZ Trustees Foundation: Rob Guest Endowment will be awarded each year to an emerging musical theatre performer selected by a panel of industry experts. The Award will provide the emerging performer with further knowledge and training in the industry to develop their potential and improve their skills and knowledge. In addition, the winner will have the chance to perform in front of a live audience at a Gala Concert that will be held each year in October.
The ANZ Trustees Foundation: Rob Guest Endowment has been enthusiastically endorsed by The Australian Business Arts Foundation (ABAF), recognising its contribution to the arts, emerging artists and the future of performing arts in Australia. ABAF is a national organisation which promotes private sector support for the arts by making connections with businesses large and small, arts organisations of all types, individual artists, trusts and foundations.
