The Australian National University is delighted to present the Whitworth Roach Classical Music Performance Competition to be awarded in 2016 at the School of Music, 21-22 September.
In addition to a prize-pool of $20,000, the supporting endowment generously donated by Ms Christine Roach also makes provision for the ANU School of Music to invite a musician or musicians of international acclaim to visit the university in the week of the competition each year. The musician/s will contribute to the educational and outreach programmes of the School as well as act as competition judges.
We are proud to welcome the Australian String Quartet for the 2016 Competition, as both guest artists and adjudicators.
