Recitals Australia runs comprehensive support, mentor and performance programs for students and upcoming musicians across South Australia, all supported through tax deductible donations towards the Performers’ Advancement Fund.
Offerings include free attendance for Elder Conservatorium students to each of the Virtuosi Series performances held at Elder Hall and supported access for students to mentoring and master class opportunities with Virtuosi artists.
Two specific Awards and Grant programs are also available:
Lunch Hour Awards
At the conclusion of each of the Autumn and Spring Series, up to 8 finalists are selected from the young performers to play in a Finals Concert. A maximum of 2 Awards of $1,000 may be made per season, with other finalists receiving a minimum of $100 (maximum available per season is $3,000).
Eligible performers electing to be considered for a Lunch Hour Award will be asked to perform in a ‘finals’ concert held at the end of the Series in which they have performed. The Awards will be made immediately following this concert.
