Maxwell Foster (QLD) piano

Maxwell Foster began music lessons as a young child and at the age of eight entered the Queensland Young Conservatorium of Music where he studied under Jenni Flemming. He has won many prizes including the award for the best performer in the Redland Bay Eisteddfod (2005), winner of the intermediate section of the Queensland Piano Competition (2005), winner of the 15 years and under section of the Petrof Pianoforte Competition (2005), and winner of the 2005 Brisbane Boys College Concerto Competition. In 2005 he was invited to perform with the St Lucia Orchestra.

After completing his AMusA at 13, Maxwell moved to Melbourne for tuition with Rita Reichman and to attend the Australian National Academy of Music. He is a boarder on scholarship at Scotch College where he plays viola in the school’s strings group and in their senior orchestra, and he is an enthusiastic participator in chamber music activities.

Maxwell has been a state finalist in the Yamaha Piano Competition twice, first representing Queensland and then Victoria.

His busy schedule this year has included solo recitals and a concerto performance with Melbourne’s Pro Musica Orchestra.
