This is the first year the Finals Concert has been held at the Concourse in Chatswood.
The competition is open to secondary school pupils in years 7-12 at schools throughout NSW and the ACT and this year attracted just under 100 entrants, eager to compete for a coveted position in the Finals Concert and for the prize money of up to $10,000.
Regarded as a stepping stone to national and international success, the competition has been held annually since 1984 and provides an invaluable performance opportunity for young musicians to showcase their talents as concerti soloists accompanied by orchestra. The list of previous winners reflects the names of many well known personalities in the music world, such as Amy Dickson, Natalie Chee, Grace Clifford and Simon Tedeschi.
Hear these talented young musicians give dynamic concerto performances and assert a vibrant future ahead for live classical music performance.
