A message from Piers Lane
"At a time when we in London are in our third long lockdown, with live events like a half-remembered dream, it is heartening to know that the Australian Youth Classical Music Competition will again take place in 2021. I am hoping to be in Australia myself from May to October and look forward to friends’ accounts of the competition as it unfolds.
It is so important in our musical world to have goals to work towards, informed listeners to whom we can entrust our visions, audiences to spur us on and inspire our best communication - and not least, the opportunity to win some cash and kudos!
I trust that the 2021 competition will have you weighing up which repertoire will currently show you to best advantage, planning your application with due thought and self-awareness. Grab this opportunity, take it seriously and toitoi for great results!"
