Established in 1989 in collaboration with the Musical Society of Victoria, the 3MBS Victorian Young Performer Award has become one of Victoria’s premier youth music competitions with many of the Award’s past laureates going on to enjoy wonderful careers in classical music. 3MBS is delighted that the Award is able to resume this year on:

Sunday 23 October, 2pm
Good Shepherd Chapel
1 St Helier’s Street, Abbotsford

Congratulations to the four finalists; Lisette Bolton (voice), Anna Gao (piano), Michael Liu (oboe) and Jamie Miles (viola) who will be competing for the esteemed Victorian state prize and the chance to compete in the National Young Virtuoso Award on Sunday 20 November.

While the judges deliberate there will be the premiere performance of Robert McIntyre’s, the distance between performed by Molly Jenkins (flute/alto flute), Nicole Marshall (alto saxophone), Sarah Wang (cello) and Bridget Bourne (vibraphone). Robert was awarded the 2022 Musical Society of Victoria David Henkels Composition Award for the distance between.

You can support the next generation of talented musicians (and enjoy an exceptional afternoon of music-making) by purchasing a ticket to the event on 23 October or by becoming a Young Performer Angel.
