Peter Musson Memorial Prize, Open Bassoon Section

Peter Musson Memorial Prize

Peter Musson

Peter Musson


The 2023 ADRS National Competition will be held in Brisbane on August 20th with the $1,000 Peter Musson Memorial Prize to be awarded for the most outstanding performance on bassoon in the Open Section.


Peter Musson passed away last year after a lifetime as a musician and a truly international career. At the age of just 16, Peter joined the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra (then NZBC)’s bassoon section, rising through the ranks to become Principal, followed by appointments to Principal positions in the UK, South Africa, and Germany. In 1979, he was appointed Principal Bassoon with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, later becoming Senior Lecturer in Bassoon at the Queensland Conservatorium.

Peter always sought to encourage young bassoonists and his former students have gained professional playing and teaching positions around the world.
