Semi-finals and masterclass

We are delighted that Miss Joan Carden will present a masterclass during the semi-finals.

The event will take place at 2pm on Sunday 14 June at St Patrick’s Parish Hall, 5 Drynan Street, Summer Hill. Parking is available, and the Hall is about 12 mins walk from Ashfield or Summer Hill stations.

We have seven semi-finalists. Each will sing one piece from the classical repertoire and receive advice and guidance from Miss Carden; after that, each semi-finalist will sing a second piece (concluding by 5pm). Three finalists will be announced and the event will conclude with drinks. The three finalists will sing at our Great Hall concert at 3pm on 16 August; the Award winner for 2015 will be selected, and there will also be a People’s Choice prize.

We will have a small audience for the event (up to 150 people). A limited number of tickets is now for sale for $25 each (which includes a copy of the program, and drinks). If you wish to buy tickets, please email  so that the tickets can be held for you at the door for payment on the day. Please come at least 15 minutes before the semi-finals commence to get your reserved tickets.

If tickets sell out, I will post that news here.
