Evan Hopkins Awarded the 2016 Mt Beauty Clifford Hocking Scholarship
I am very pleased to announce that I have been awarded the 2016 Mt Beauty Music Festival Clifford Hocking Scholarship! This will enable me to make the premiere solo guitar recording of Nigel Westlake’s ‘Mosstrooper Peak’ Sonata for Guitar. I am very excited to be able to record this incredible work! It’s a complex but very human work that has been well received whenever I have performed it and it will be a pleasure to record this eminent work later in the year.
As part of this Scholarship I will also be performing at the Mt Beauty Music Festival on the 29th and 30th of April.
I would like to give my thanks to all the organisers of this festival and the Trustees of the Clifford Hocking Scholarship for giving me this great opportunity!
