Joan Carden Award 2017


In 2017 the Sydney University Graduate Choir, with the gracious support of Miss Joan Carden AO OBE, is again conducting the Joan Carden Award competition.

This Award aims to:

  • identify and encourage young singing talent
  • strengthen the Choir’s relationship with the University of Sydney and the Sydney music community, and
  • honour the contribution of Joan Carden to music in Australia.

Young singers aged between 22 and 35 years are invited to become part of this exciting event!  The three finalists will sing with an orchestra in the Choir’s August concert in the Great Hall of the University of Sydney, with the adjudicators selecting the winner and the audience voting for the ‘People’s Choice’.

The Award has a cash prize of $6,000 and the opportunity to perform as a soloist in one of the Choir’s forthcoming concerts.
