The Sutherland Shire and St George Youth Music Awards is an annual event organised by Sutherland Music Club in association with several sponsors.

The Awards aim to:

  • Give opportunities for music performance

  • Encourage high standards of performance at all levels

  • Cover a range of musical genres

  • Be open to young musicians of Sutherland Shire & St George areas

The Awards judging criteria include:

  • Presentation and Professionalism

  • Atmosphere and Visual Impression

  • Music Selection and Performance Quality

  • Creative Ability

  • Audience Appeal

  • Music Accuracy


The Awards encourage individual performers to show their style and versatility in a spirit of friendly competition. We seek to encourage musical and performance excellence in classical music, opera, jazz, music theatre, world music, folk and cabaret.
The performance experience can assist young musicians to develop into confident, creative artists. Emphasis is placed on the entrant’s ability to communicate with the audience, on a sound technical base.

Approximately 12 Finalists will be selected at the Auditions to perform in the Finals Concert. Prizes will be awarded to encourage music learning and performance opportunities.
