Did you miss hearing James Dong, our 2016 Open Instrumental winner ? You have another chance at the upcoming Barrier Reef Orchestra concert on Saturday 19 August
The Australian Concerto & Vocal Competition offers a unique opportunity for emerging musicians to be stimulated and extended. Held annually in Townsville it attracts musicians from around the world to perform works from concerto and opera repertoire in sections for vocal, instrumental, and school ensembles.
It’s prestige as a national event is now well established with many of our Open instrumentalists being finalists and winners of the ABC Symphony Australia Young Performers Awards.
The Competition adjudicators are recognised both nationally and internationally for their expertise and interest in encouraging musical development.
Thank you to Sponsors and Partners for a successful 2017 Competition
Without our dedicated sponsors past and present we would not have such a long history of encouraging and engaging with emerging artists from near and far.
We would also like to thank the teachers and accompanists of all participants for their dedication and hard work, and the participants themselves for making each year an exciting and memorable event.
There are many ways you can support the Competition, from sponsoring an award category to volunteering during the competition.
