Congratulations to 2nd-year Bachelor of Music student James Russo on his winning the Margaret Sutherland Bursary. The Margaret Sutherland Bursary is an annual music competition held under the auspices of The Lyceum Club where the top nominated performers from Monash University’s Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music, the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music and the Victorian College of the Arts compete by presenting a recital of music, including one work by the late Australian composer Margaret Sutherland. James, a classical piano student studying under the guidance of Dr Kenji Fujimura, triumphed with his performance of works by Sutherland, Ravel and Prokofiev. It is the second year in a row where a Monash student has won this prestigious classical music prize; Master’s violin student Edward Antonov received the bursary in 2012. Congratulations to James for his fine achievement!
