Com­pe­ti­tion op­tions

The Northland Age - - Local News -

The trus­tees of the Kerik­eri In­ter­na­tional Pi­ano Com­pe­ti­tion out­line op­tions for the fu­ture of the event at a pub­lic meet­ing in St James’ Church Hall at 5.30pm to­day. Feed­back will be taken into ac­count when a fi­nal de­ci­sion is made in April. Trust chair­woman Sylvia Burch said the fu­ture of New Zealand’s only in­ter­na­tional pi­ano com­pe­ti­tion was un­cer­tain due to “stag­nant” au­di­ence num­bers and grow­ing costs. It was dif­fi­cult to re­place trus­tees as they re­tired. The bi­en­nial com­pe­ti­tion was es­tab­lished in 1987.
