Don Cowell Memorial Trust Prize

(Section IN489) Middle School Recorder Solo

Prizes: 1st $90, 2nd $70, 3rd $40


This trust was set up to perpetuate the memory of Don Cowell, a gifted player and teacher of the recorder and other instruments, who was killed in a car accident in 1979 when he was only 44 years old. Don was a founding member of the Victorian Recorder Guild and served on the Committee from 1974. He taught CAE recorder classes and was the recorder soloist for the Melbourne Mandolin Orchestra.

The funds to establish the Trust were donated by recorder and mandolin players and other musicians. The trust deed provides that the funds are to be used to provide an annual prize to students of recorder in order to encourage their further studies and the performance of recorder and its repertoire.

The Bendigo Competitions Society Inc. is appreciative of the Trustees willingness to offer prizes in 2017 and encourages recorder teachers and students to avail themselves of the opportunity to enter the recorder sections this year.
