Applications for the 2021 Fellowship are now open!
Applications for 2021 Fellowship close Tuesday 21 April 2020. Results will be sent to applicants via email on Monday 4 May 2020.
Fellowship auditions are in two rounds. The first round is audition by video – YouTube, Vimeo or similar. Successful candidates are invited through to the second-round live auditions in Sydney. Should you be successful through to the second round it is expected that you'll be available to attend the Sydney audition in person on the date for your instrument listed below.
Due to the current situation leading to venue closures and social distancing measures being put in place, we understand that it may be difficult for you to find a recording venue with a piano or an accompanist to play with. The panel will accept round 1 video auditions unaccompanied if you are unable to find a suitable venue with a piano or an accompanist to record your audition. The panel will also take into consideration the limitations due to lack of access to usual venues and technical equipment for your recording.
The audition process for Round 2 will be reassessed closer to the time and successful applicants will be advised, dependent on restrictions at that time.

‘‘Being a Fellow was really pivotal for my orchestral playing. It was during that year that I began to understand how to play in an orchestra, which I really believe is something you can only learn by doing it, preferably alongside excellent, experienced mentors.’’
