The 2018 Young Performers Awards Semi Finals

The Young Performers Awards (YPA) have long been regarded as Australia’s premier national artist development program for young musicians, instrumentalists and performing artists. The 2018 Young Performers Awards SEMI FINALS CONCERTS will be held on Monday 16 & Tuesday 17 July at the City Recital Hall, Angel Place.

After two vigorous rounds of adjudication, the twelve 2018 Semi-Finalists were named by a panel of internationally-recognised musicians and include ANNA DA SILVA CHEN (violin), STEFANIE FARRANDS (viola), WAYNNE (WOO SEOK) KWON (cello), ANDREY LEBEDEV (classical guitar), SHUAN HERN LEE (piano), TONY LEE (piano), ROBBIN REZA (piano), OLIVER SHERMACHER (clarinet), RILEY SKEVINGTON (violin), EMILY SUN (violin), BENETT TSAI (cello) and VICTORIA WONG (violin).

The YPA has a long and venerable history as Australia’s premier national music competition. The list of its major prize winners is testament to its success in promoting and nurturing many of the finest musicians in this country who have made an incalculable contribution to our cultural life for over seven decades. The YPA aims to preserve this tradition of excellence, adapting to the demands of the 21st century music industry, and rewarding young performers who represent the pinnacle of Australian music.
As this is a national competition, the typical recipients of the YPA will be those who are poised to have an exceptional career in music at the highest level and who, through this competition, will gain significant performing experience as well as necessary exposure and financial help to advance their careers.
