The Lewis Eady Charitable Trust was established in 2008 to better serve and support emerging talent and music education within New Zealand. THE TRUST'S MAIN GOALS ARE TO:
The Lewis Eady Charitable Trust Steinway Spirio Record Composition Prize was established in 2019 to encourage students from the University of Auckland’s School of Music to compose music for the Steinway Spirio Record.
Not only is the Steinway Spirio Record a magnificent acoustic instrument, it is capable of high resolution recording and playback, revolutionising how we compose and experience music. This new prize encourages young musicians to expand their compositions to new heights.
Join us at this Final Performance to witness three new compositions by the shortlisted students: Oliver Bramah, Ewan Collins, Weeney Xian. Each composition will be 4-6 minutes long and explore the technical capacity of the Steinway Spirio Record.
The shortlisted applicants have received $1,000 each and the composer of the winning piece, chosen by audience vote at this event, will receive an additional prize of $500.
Doors will open at 6.45pm for a prompt 7.30pm start.
