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.
ENTRIES NOW OPEN
Entries must be received on or before 19th May, 2021
Vocal Masterclass 2021
The president and committee of the Australian Concerto & Vocal Competition are pleased to announce a very special addition to the competition this year: a Vocal Masterclass featuring entrants from the competition. Ms Merlyn Quaife AM, our adjudicator from Melbourne, will conduct the public Vocal Masterclass on Monday evening 19th July, starting at 6.30pm. The venue will be C2 at Townville Civic Theatre.
All vocal entrants who are not finalists are eligible and any vocal entrant who would be available are asked to indicate their availability when checking in. The adjudicator will then select five entrants to participate in the masterclass.
Maryleigh Hand, official specialist vocal accompanist, will be available for those who have entered that she has already accompanied.
The public are invited to attend this event and it is hoped that many local teachers and students will be in the audience.
