Free admission.

The annual Douglas Lilburn Trust Composition Prize Concert is the major event on the School of Music’s composition and sonic arts calendar. Prizes from the Lilburn Trust are awarded by an adjudication panel to the top student composers and performers.

There are many promising students who, because of their circumstances, are unable to come to university to further their training. Scholarships play a vital role in helping many students into tertiary education. If you would like to donate towards a scholarship or support the programmes offered by the University of Auckland in any other way, we would be very pleased to hear from you.
