The Australian Concerto and Vocal Competition committee regrets to announce that this year’s competition has been cancelled.
The Townsville City Council has advised that the Townsville Civic Theatre, the C2 space and the performance pianos needed for the competition, will not be available for use as a result of water damage following the recent Townsville floods.
The Australian Concerto and Vocal Competition provides talented, national and international instrumental musicians with an opportunity to perform a full concerto and vocalists to present vocal repertoire from opera and oratorio requiring equivalent musical expertise. All performances receive a critique by internationally recognized adjudicators.
Whilst the cancellation of the 2019 competition will be a big disappointment to many, be aware that work has already begun on preparing for the 2020 competition (17-21 July).
In 2020 we will celebrate the 40th Anniversary of what has become a prestigious national competition with international entrants.
