Michael Bostock performs

Michael Bostock performed in the 2020 Ocy L. Downs Piano Competition which encourages young talented pianists to aspire to lofty goals by performing from memory before three distinguished jurors.  Michael was awarded 1st Place! He is 14 years old and attends Waynflete School in Portland. He studies piano under Naydene Bowder at Portland Conservatory of Music and has been playing for 7 years.


  1. Two-Part Invention in F Major (Inventio 8) by Johann Sebastian Bach
  2. Andalucia (From the Spanish Suite Andalucia) by Ernesto Lecuona
  3. Sonata in C Major, Opus 13 “Pathetique” Grave – Allegro di molto e con brio by Ludwig van Beethoven

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, this year’s competition was turned into a virtual competition. Families came to our studios one at a time to film their competition pieces. The performances were edited together and sent to our panel of jurors for review. All of the students did an outstanding job, and PCM would like to congratulate all of the students who performed for your fantastic work this year, as well as a thank you for your flexibility and dedication.
