Competition History and Purpose
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. Inspired by LaReine Quick’s love for piano, the competition and recital are held in the memory of Henry and LaReine Quick, and Jesse Bowman. After a 21 year legacy in Sedona, Arizona, the Quick Bowman Family partnered with the New West Symphony, a professional orchestra that performs in Thousand Oaks and Camarillo, California to hold the New West Symphony Quick Bowman Piano Competition. Winners receive cash prizes, recital performances and masterclasses.
