Piano Competition Winners

New West Quick Boman Competition

The Quick Bowman Piano Competition was created by Henry and LaReine Quick in 1990 to give local youth an opportunity to perform before judges and be awarded for their participation in the competition. This competition and recital are now held in the memory of Henry and LaReine Quick, and Jesse Bowman. It was LaReine Quick's love for piano that inspired the competition.

After a 21 year legacy in Sedona Arizona, the Quick Bowman Family has now partnered with the New West Symphony, a professional orchestra that performs in Thousand Oaks, Oxnard and Santa Monica, California to hold the New West Symphony Quick Bowman Piano Competition.

 The youth competition for ages 7-17 was held on April, 23 2017. The adult competition for ages 18-25 was held on April 30, 2017. Winners will receive cash prizes, recital performances and masterclasses.
