It was a proud moment for the Boys’ School music groups when the awards were announced at this year’s Lewis Eady Junior Music Contest - the Jazz Band was awarded Gold and the Jazz Combo, the Recorder Minstrels and The Ligature Lads (five clarinet players) were awarded Silver.

Established in 2008 to ‘better serve and support emerging talent and music education within New Zealand’ the Lewis Eady Charitable Trust organises an annual contest for Primary/Intermediate age musicians. It offers a performance opportunity for children at all levels of musical achievement with the aim to encourage young musicians to increase confidence and gain valuable experience performing to an audience.

The contest adjudicators also provide constructive and encouraging written comments for the performers to allow them to understand where their strengths lie and what areas could be worked on.

Since its inception, the Boys’ School has traditionally done well at this competition and were delighted to be recognised once again for the quality of the music programme. Well done boys!
