Australian Music Centre


Bringing together two important events in Australian art music.

The Paul Lowin Orchestral Prize ($25,000) and Song Cycle Prize ($15,000) are among Australia’s richest prizes for music composition, awarded every 2-3 years. The prestigious Peggy Glanville-Hicks Address has been igniting debate and highlighting crucial issues annually since its establishment in 1999.

The works shortlisted for the 2019 Paul Lowin Prizes are made public in early October. Last offered in 2016, the Paul Lowin Prizes are managed by Perpetual, as trustee for the Paul Lowin Trust, and presented in collaboration with the Australian Music Centre.

The 2019 Peggy Glanville-Hicks Address will be delivered by Deborah Cheetham AO: Yorta Yorta woman, soprano, composer and educator, and a leader in the Australian arts landscape for more than 25 years.
