The 3 Finalists have just minutes ago been announced for the 2018 Australian ‘ABC Young Performer of the Year’ Awards – in Sydney, Australia.

The 2018 Finalists are: 

  • Emily Sun (Violin)
  • Kevin Chow (Piano)
  • Oliver Shermacher (Clarinet)

Regarded as Australia’s most prestigious classical music prize for instrumentalists 30 years and younger – previous winners include international string soloists: Adele AnthonyLiwei Qin and VC Young Artist Suyeon Kang.

The ‘ABC Young Performer of the Year’ will receive AUD $80,000, a CD recording – and a number of important, domestic solo engagements.

The Final Round will be held at the Sydney Opera House on Tuesday the 24th of July – with conductor Nicholas Milton and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

The competition is now managed by the philanthropic organisation Music & Opera Singers Trust – who stepped in after Symphony Australia announced in 2015 that they would no longer be continuing the awards.
