YOUNG ADULT | SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE
College-aged and young adult singers are invited to apply for selection into the Young Adult Series at Sydney Opera House. Applications are adjudicated by the expert music professionals from the Honors Selection Board.
Selection of Finalists
Selected Finalists receive the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work with and learn from a renowned conductor as they prepare for and perform at a truly world-class venue, the Concert Hall at Sydney Opera House. In a special performance, students perform for Sydney concert-goers, educators, and family.
In most cases, qualified musicians are invited to apply after having been nominated by a music teacher familiar with their accomplishments. Given that not all music professionals are aware of the opportunity to nominate, performers who haven't received a teacher nomination may still apply and are required to submit the contact information for a teacher reference as part of the application process.
The 2023 Young Adult Honors Performance Series will feature rising young singers between 18 and 25 years old. Eligible applicants will have graduated high school or will have completed their school-leaving examinations between 2016 and 2022. Applicants must submit a completed application, which includes:
- Online application form and deposit
- Teacher reference
- A performer biography
- A three- to five-minute audition recording
Musicians who submit their application form and deposit before July 6, 2022, will receive $50 off the program tuition!
