Musica Viva and Artistic Director, Competitions, Wilma Smith are delighted to announce the return of the national chamber music championship, Strike A Chord.
Secondary school students across Australia are encouraged to form chamber music ensembles of between three and eight players in any vocal or instrumental combination performing music that is ‘classical’ in style.
Strike A Chord will give students the opportunity to explore their potential and discover the joy in making music with friends, whatever their level of ability.
Twelve aspiring groups will be invited to perform at Melbourne Recital Centre during a Finals Weekend on 14 & 15 August 2021, competing for cash and prizes.
There are major incentives for ensembles to enter Strike A Chord, including a number of prizes awarded at various stages throughout the competition. Entries close on 13 May 2021.
