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.

St Cecilia Award Concert – 5 December 2021

The St Cecilia Youth Music Scholarships have traditionally been awarded at a concert closest to the birth of St Cecilia in late November. However this year due to COVID restrictions we have moved the concert to Sunday 5 December 2021 commencing at 3.00pm at St Bernard’s church David Street, Batehaven.

Tickets are available at the door – $10 adults. Persons 18 years and below free.

We hope to see many of our supporters take this opportunity to listen to performances from our award recipients.

Applications for the scholarship program are now being accepted online here.

St Cecilia goes virtual!

The St Cecilia Youth Music Scholarships committee has decided that to ensure our audition program is not disrupted we will change our program this year and invite entrants to submit their performance online. This will also ensure that HSC students who are commencing exams on 8 November are not distracted by having to undertake an audition on Saturday 6 or Sunday 7 November.

All entrants will be required to provide a recording of their performance via our online application form here.
