The Muriel May concert is held annually. The contestants are Taranaki musicians under the age of 21 years. Each contestant performs a 15 minute programme of contrasting material at the concert.
The contestants are judged by an independent adjudicator and the superior contestant on the night is awarded a scholarship of $10,000!
There are four contestants:
- David Codd (Piano)
- Daniel Chow (Euphonium)
- Emma McNab (Flute)
- Ronan Avery (Violin)
There will also be a guest performance by last year’s successful contestant, Dominic Jacquemard (marimba). The adjudicator for the concert will be David Bremner of Wellington.
THE MURIAL MAY SCHOLARSHIP
The Scholarship was initiated by Sylvia May in memory of her mother Muriel and has been held annually since 1998. Periodically, the Trustees have made some minor adjustments to the original deed as time and experience dictates.
Applicants are accepted up to the age of 21 (as at the end of December in the year they apply); they must have been educated in the Taranaki region for a minimum of 3 years; as well as classical music, contestants may include (notated) jazz; contestants may enter as frequently as they are eligible but can only win the scholarship once; the number of finalists each year is limited to 8.
