1st Prize

Congratulations to Lochlan McBride for winning first prize with his performance of Bach's Musette.


2nd Prize

Congratulaions to Elijah Butterworth on winning second prize with his performance of Chapple's Petite Valse.

Elijah Butterworth

The adjudicators liked the sense of overall fluency and tempo with its excellent accuracy, but suggested there was still room for more musical detail and lyrical phrasing.


3rd Prize

Congratulations to Rei Hughes on winning third prize with his performance of June Armstrong's Dusty Blue.

The adjudicators felt that the strong sense of left hand tone was musically appropriate and the ending was well managed, even if there was scope for a tauter pulse in places with more musical detail in the right hand phrasing.
