Wellington To Host Apra Silver Scroll Award

Wellington To Host Apra Silver Scroll Award

Wellington plays host tomorrow night to what promises to be the biggest night in New Zealand’s musical calendar - the APRA Silver Scroll Award 2004.

New Zealand’s most prestigious music award gets presented - for the first time - at an exclusive awards ceremony at the Wellington Town Hall.

The finalists for the APRA Silver Scroll Award are -

Shayne Carter, Andy Morton and Ned Ngatae (Dimmer) for ‘Getting What You Give’

Liam Finn (Betchadupa) for ‘The Bats of Darkwell Lane’

Warryn Maxwell (Trinity Roots) for ‘Home Land and Sea’

Scribe (Malo Luafutu) and P-Money (Peter Wadams) (Scribe) for ‘Not Many’

Marshall Smith (The New Freedom) for ‘Grey Boy’

‘These are songs that excite, unite and challenge us all, “ says APRA's Director of NZ Operations, Anthony Healey.

The Silver Scroll Award, presented since 1965, is the pre-eminent award for song-writing in New Zealand, recognising simple creative excellence.

Unique to the APRA Silver Scroll Award evening, the finalists songs will be performed and interpreted by their contemporaries under the musical directorship of composer Victoria Kelly. Organisers remain tight lipped about who the line up will be but confirm that guests are in for a treat.

Four other awards will be presented on the night -
The Most Performed Work Overseas Award
The Most Performed Work in New Zealand Award
The SOUNZ Contemporary Award, recognising creative excellence by a NZ composer
The APRA Maioha Award, presented for the best Maori waiata of the year

The invite - only event kicks off at 7.00pm.

APRA represents over 35,000 writers and publishers through direct membership, with close to 5,000 NZ members, and nearly 2 million writers and publishers throughout the world under reciprocal agreements with other service organisations.
