The Eckhart-Gramatté National Music Competition for the performance of Canadian and contemporary music has announced Toronto-based pianist and composer Matt Poon as the top prize winner.

“The only reason to commit to a project like this is if you really, really love new music.” says 2016 Winner Matt Poon. “ I truly love this repertoire and I care about it so much. I feel so honoured to be part of this group of pianists. This has been a very emotional journey and I’m so grateful.”

Second place went to Naomi Woo, and third place to Jesse Plessis.
