The Recitals Australia Peter Schodde Memorial Piano Scholarship

In memory of the late Peter Schodde, Recitals Australia has partnered with the Helpmann Academy to offer the Peter Schodde Memorial Piano Scholarship. Valued at $5,000, the Scholarship is open to pianists between the ages of 18 and 26 who are passionate about their future.

The Peter Schodde Memorial Piano Scholarship was established in memory of the late Peter Schodde OAM (former Recitals Australia Treasurer and Vice President, pianist and philanthropist). Recitals Australia presented a concert in August 2012 to raise funds to support a scholarship for young South Australian pianists. The concert raised almost $25,000 which, combined with future fundraising events, will provide five $5,000 scholarships.

Funding from the scholarship will provide the recipient with the ability to undertake professional development opportunities, such as travel to workshops, masterclasses and courses, recording and mentoring.
