The Talent is an exciting live performance program highlighting the abilities of young and upcoming performers in Melbourne and beyond. Each week we will hear recitals from two performers, as well as an interview with professional industry mentors who offer feedback on their performance. For The Talent 2018 – Series 1 our resident mentor will be violinist Markiyan Melnychenko. Three performers will be selected for the finals and will perform once again on the 29th of May where we announce the winners of the series.
