2021 National Competition

To all young musicians, we are excited to offer a chance to travel overseas and study as part of the Australian Youth Classical Music Competition. 

Our 2021 Competition will open very soon giving local and interstate musicians an opportunity to enter Australia's premiere classical music competition for young people. 

This is our 30th year of promoting excellence for young musicians and our competition gathers strength with every year. For the 2021 Competition we have raised the age limit by one year so those who were reaching the normal age limit in 2020 can still enter in 2021 if they wish.    ​

We look forward to welcoming a new group of young musicians to audition for our National competition next year.

2021 Regional Competition

Our Regional competition is open only to young musicians from Geelong and surrounding areas and again we look forward to providing young people with the chance to perform and compete with fellow musicians.

The Geelong College Alliance

A notable achievement this year is our alliance with The Geelong College to further promote classical music locally and nationally. As part of this alliance, the Geelong College will host our annual competitions in the Keith Humble Centre for the next five years. 

We are proud to partner with The Geelong College to support young musicians in this way, providing aspirational performance opportunities together with an enjoyable experience for audiences.
