“Classical music is a vital, pulsing and progressive art-form, thriving in the hands of these fierce young trail-blazers”

– Sonja Lifschitz, pianist

Each year, The Music Trust’s Freedman Classical Fellowship promises spectacular creativity and energy as finalists vie for the $21,000 Fellowship in a thrilling deciding concert.

After a nation-wide search, three exceptional finalists have been selected as Australia’s preeminent classical instrumentalists 35 years and under. Join us for this exciting concert that demonstrates great diversity, innovation and agility.
