The Friends Ensemble Music Prizes are established in partnership with the ANU School of Music and the Friends of the School of Music to promote ensemble playing in the tertiary student cohort, in all musical genres taught at the ANU School of Music.
On behalf of the ANU School of Music and the Friends of the ANU School of Music we encourage you to come and take part in the viewing of the finals as there will be two People's Choice awards presented on the evening!
This year prizes will be awarded in two categories:
- the Friends Chamber Music Prize (First Prize $1,000, People's Choice $500)
- the Friends Jazz and Contemporary Music Prize (First Prize $1,000, People's Choice $500)
To be eligible for the prizes, each ensemble must include at least one member who is a current tertiary ANU School of Music student. All other members of eligible ensembles must be current students of the ANU School of Music or the Open School of Music.
