The annual Whitworth Roach Classical Music Performance Competition will take place over two days, culminating in finals on the 22 September.
First prize: $10,000
Second prize: $5,000
Third Prize: $2,500
People's Choice: $2,500
In addition to the 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 musicians of international acclaim to the event.
In 2016 the School of Music is proud to welcome the Australian String Quartet as both guest artists and adjudicators.
The heats for this competition on 21 September are closed to the public, but please join us for the Australian String Quartet recital on 21 September at 7pm (tickets available through Eventbrite), and at the Competition Finals (free entry) on Thursday 22 September at 5.30pm.
