It is with regret the Christchurch Civic Music Council informs everyone that the Ernest Empson Scholarship, in its original form, has now ceased.
At an Executive meeting of the Christchurch Civic Music Council on Thursday 12th March 2020, with approval of a member of the Empson family, it was agreed the Ernest Empson Scholarship is to be re-formatted.
The Ernest Empson Scholarship fund will now be directed towards the Junior Jury prize at the National Concerto Competition.
This prize will be renamed “Ernest Empson Award” and the prize money of $200.00 will be awarded at the bi-annual piano competitions.
