Affiliated with The Federated Music Clubs of Australia NSW Council, Inc.
The Sutherland Music Club is a not-for-profit organisation established to promote Music within the local community.
The Club was founded in 1957 by the late Clarice Campbell, a prominent Music Teacher in Sutherland Shire.
The Club's mission is to promote good music at an affordable cost and facilitate the advancement of music within the Shire, whilst providing opportunity for members and their friends to share their love for this art.
Five Concerts are hosted annually, in addition to a Heritage Festival Concert and the Annual Youth Music Awards.
Other related events such as Sutherland Eisteddfod and performances organized by the FMCA receive the Club’s assistance.
A Committee is elected annually to ensure that the aims of the Club are achieved. Strong support is provided by local music teachers and well known identities in the music field.
A Seniors Concert is organized by the Club in association with Heritage Week. Invitations are sent to Seniors organisations throughout the Shire inviting their members and associates to attend this event.
One of the Club’s major activities is the staging of the Sutherland Shire and St. George Youth Music Awards where talented young musicians and singers aged between 13 and 18 compete for a range of cash prizes.
As part of the Youth Music Awards there is also a Young Composers Competition which has encouraged the creation of some very innovative modern pieces of music.
After the heats a Finals Concert is held where experienced adjudicators select the winners.
Strong support for this event is provided by Sutherland Shire Council.
