Philip H Moore Music Competition

Home » Events » Philip H Moore Music Competition

Philip H Moore (1916 – 2005) was born in Stockport, England. He graduated from University with a degree in Chemical engineering and built up a successful business in Durban. He was a philanthropist who donated money to many worthy causes, and he had a love for music, particularly classical music. The Philip H Moore music competition has been set up in his memory by his wife, Norma and his daughter, Victoria Bennett, who is a Kensington resident. Jeppe High School for Girls was approached in 2005 by Victoria Bennett to host the competition.

The competition for classical soloists was launched in 2006 and has gone from strength to strength since then. Catering for  musicians from ages 8 and under up to and including 25 years, the competition showcases a great variety of soloists playing instruments which have included cello, viola, harp, trumpet, trombone, guitar, voice, clarinet, saxophone, oboe, flute, recorder and piano. The competition comprises a First and Second Round and a Final Round in the form of a Gala event. The gala event is now held at the Brooklyn Theatre, Pretoria.
