Since 1991, the City of Boroondara has given close to 60,000 young performers an opportunity to showcase their musical talents on stage. From primary school choirs to solo instrumentalists, our competition has nurtured a love of music by all members of the community. The event encourages participation by young artists, to build confidence, recognise all abilities and to gain inspiration from their peers.

We invite the whole community to join us at heat events and finals throughout the two months of competition, and don’t forget to get your tickets for the finale on 25 June, the Boroondara Eisteddfod Piano Concerto, supported by the Zelman Memorial Symphony Orchestra.
