Heats across Australia, New Zealand and the UK

This year's IFAC Australian Singing Competition is well underway with Heats having taken place throughout April around the Australia, in New Zealand and in the United Kingdom.

This year’s National Adjudicator, Lyndon Terracini AM, has overseen this always nerve-wracking Heats process and has already noted some outstanding talent. Only the Brisbane Heats remain before the announcement of this year's Semi-Finalists.

High standards

The high standard of our Semi-Finalists is ensured by the quality of our local Adjudication Panels. These professionals donate their time and expertise to help discover and encourage talented young singers and their contribution is deeply valued.

The ASC would like to thank: Stuart Maunder AM and Robert Wiremu (New Zealand); Anke Höppner and Ian McCahon (NSW);  David Harper, Kate Paterson and Linnhe Robertson (United Kingdom); Antoinette Halloran and Richard Mills AM (Victoria); Alexandre Da Costa-Graveline, Burhan Guner and Patricia Price (Western Australia); and Andrew Collis and Gregory Massingham (Queensland).

Stay tuned to our Competition Facebook page and our > website for the announcement of the Semi-Finalists in May.
