There are several special classes that pianists may wish to enter:
Performers aged 6 or under may wish to enter the Party Piece class.
More advanced performers may wish to enter the William Lewis Recital class. Entrants to this class should prepare a 15-minute recital of 2 or more contrasting pieces.
The Marian Baker memorial class is another recital class for which a minimum standard of Grade 6 on two contrasting pieces is required.
The Sproule class is for performers up to the age of 15. Competitors must perform a poem or an acted scene AND a song or a piece of music on any instrument.
Please note: previous winners of Special Awards may not enter on the same instrument in the same class in subsequent years.
