2018 Bedford Winner
This year’s Reginald Bedford Piano Competition scholarship went to Cordell Lewis, student of McMaster instructor Judy Hunter. Cordell receives a $1,000 award, and will be performing at next year’s Humanities Awards Assembly at which he will be presented a medal.
The competition, which was held on June 2nd, is open to all pianists who are currently enrolled, or will be enrolled in a music program at McMaster University.
The Reginald Bedford Award was made possible by a generous donation from Mrs. Evelyn Bedford in memory of her late husband, to honour his career as both a piano teacher and performer.
Congratulations Cordell, and our thanks to everyone who participated!
