About the Shepparton Young Instrumentalist Awards
A showcase of our next generation of young musicians.
The SYIA was launched in 2011 to create a regional competition for new and aspiring musicians.
In addition to the prestige of winning an award in one of the instrument categories, young musicians benefit from competition and the potential to perform on the big stage in a gala concert at Eastbank in September.
The 2018 Shepparton Young Instrumentalists Award were a huge success and gave many students an opportunity for their talents to be recognized at a community level.
Congratulations to our 2018 winners:
1st Place: Liesl Parnell - Violin
2nd Place: Olivia Brereton - Voice
3rd Place: Luella Drinnan - French Horn
HM: Alex Garla - Voice
HM: Alan Huynh
Sectional competitions are held on Sunday during the day. Competitors from the U16 and U19 sections are automatically qualified for the Gala Final Concert. Other performers may be invited to perform at the Gala.
