Queensland Youth Music Awards

Queensland Youth Music Awards is one of Queensland's longest standing school music competitions which celebrates the participation of over 4000 young people in the music making process. The contest provides an environment to motivate young students to develop their skills and raise artistic levels which are applauded by audiences, other contestants and adjudicators alike.

QYMA Patron

Piers Lane
Piers Lane was a competitor and prize winner in QYMAs precursor, The Ashgrove Talent Quest.  He is now proud to support the Queensland Youth Music Awards as its Patron.  Growing up in Brisbane, Piers was a student at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music and also attended Kelvin Grove State High School.

"London-based Australian pianist Piers Lane is one of the most inquisitive and engaging live performers of his generation.  In great demand as soloist and collaborative artist, recent highlights include a performance of Busoni’s mighty piano concerto at Carnegie Hall, premieres of Carl Vine’s second Piano Concerto, written for him, with the Sydney Symphony and the London Philharmonic, and a sold-out performance of Chopin’s complete Nocturnes at Wigmore Hall."
