Saint Cecilia – The Patron Saint of Musicians

Her festival day, the 22nd of November, has been celebrated with musical performances for many centuries.

The St Cecilia South Coast Youth Music Scholarships – with generous support from local groups, donors, and the Eurobodalla Council – provide assistance to young musicians with their annual auditions and concert.

2019 Finalists Concert

Twelve talented young musicians will share prize-money totalling $5,700 as they are presented with their St Cecilia Youth Music Scholarships at a concert on up-coming Sunday.

Auditions were held with an independent adjudicator who had the difficult task of choosing the most exceptional ― from the 26 hopeful 8 to 18-year-old performers ― to perform in the concert.

The 12 music students who were chosen will perform at the finals concert which is open to the public. The concert will be held at St Bernard’s Church Batehaven on Sunday 24 November at 3.30 pm.

At the concert, performers will be awarded with scholarships ranging from $100 to $1,000 which will go towards furthering their studies.

Come to the concert and enjoy the musical talents of the young in our region ― from classical and contemporary to instrumental and vocal.

Tickets available at the door. Adults $10, under 18 free.
