About the Prize

Ethel Osborn was a well-known operatic soprano with an international career who returned to Queensland in 1951 and became a part-time examiner in singing with the Department of Music at the University of Queensland from 1952 to 1962. 

Following her death, her husband John Gilmour provided a bequest in 1983 to establish a prize in her memory.
