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.

Poon will receive $17,000 worth in first place prizes including $10,000 cash, a three-week residency and debut recital in Italy at the Casalmaggiore International Music Festival, and a 10-15 city Cross-Canada Winner’s Tour in November 2016.

“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.

Now in it’s 30th year, The E-Gré Competition is one of the most important Canadian music competition.
