Scott McIntyre wins the 2014 Jean Bogan Prize
The winners of the 2014 Jean Bogan Prize for Piano Composition have been announced by the Newcastle Conservatorium of Music. The $8,000 Jean Bogan Prize goes to Scott McIntyre for his Piano Sonata No. 2, and the $1,500 Jean Bogan Youth Prize goes to Elizabeth Younan for her work Persian Preludes.
A concert of the winning works will be presented on 29 October 2015 in the Harold Lobb Concert Hall at the Newcastle Conservatorium of Music.
Established in 1989 through the generosity of Mr Laurie Bogan as a memorial to his wife, the Jean Bogan Prize is the only one of its kind in Australia. Since its inception, the prize has produced fine piano compositions, including works by leading Australian composers such as Elena Kats-Chernin, Andrew Ford, Nigel Westlake and Brenton Broadstock.
