NSW Drs Orchestra Sydney Eisteddfod Instrumental Scholarship
11 August 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST
Tickets: Adult $30, Concession $25 (+bf)
The NSW Drs Orchestra Sydney Eisteddfod Instrumental Scholarship attracts the finest players from across the nation. The final is always an inspiring occasion that no devotee of classical music should miss.
Sponsored by the NSW Doctors Orchestra – Musicus Medicus and The Brian Shearman Memorial Trust Fund, established by his Family and Friends, the Scholarship itself endeavours to discover and encourage an outstanding instrumentalist in the fields of strings (bowed and plucked), woodwind or brass instruments.
Past winners have made their mark in musical careers while recent ones excel in studies at The Royal College of Music, The Juilliard School and other leading establishments throughout the world.
Each of the six Finalists, aged between 16 and 25 years, will perform a concert program of major works at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music for a total of 20 minutes.
Two Finalists will also be invited to compete in the ‘2017 Fine Music Young Virtuoso State Final’ on Sunday August 27 at the Fine Music Performance Studio.
