6 individual finalists in the 2022 NSW Secondary Schools Concerto Competition will perform their selected concerto with orchestra on Saturday 25 June, competing for prizes and opportunities in this prestigious annual event.

In 2022 Ku-ring-gai Philharmonic Orchestra (KPO) celebrates fifty years of making music in the community and it is the 38th year KPO has run the NSW Secondary Schools Concerto Competition. 

The competition is open to secondary school pupils in years 7-12 at schools throughout NSW and the ACT and this year attracted over 70 entrants, eager to compete for a coveted position in the Finals Concert and for the prize money of up to $10,000.  

Regarded as a stepping stone to national and international success, the competition has been held annually since 1984 and provides an invaluable performance opportunity for young musicians to showcase their talents as concerti soloists accompanied by orchestra. The list of previous winners reflects the names of many well known personalities in the music world, such as Amy Dickson, Natalie Chee, Grace Clifford and Simon Tedeschi.
