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.

Its 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.

It is with regret that the Australian Concerto and Vocal Competition Management Committee had to make the decision to postpone the 2020, 40th Anniversary Competition to next year.  The safety of all involved with the competition must be our paramount concern in these very challenging and uncertain times with Covid-19.  We know that the unavoidable postponement of the event will be a disappointment to our members and supporters and also to those who have already entered or would have entered the Competition. We look forward to a great celebration from 16 to 20 July 2021 with your continued support.
