This year it was decided to trial a new venue, The Two Vaults Restaurant in Sharp Street. This proved to be a stroke of genius and credit must go to Emma Green for this idea.

22 young Cooma musicians participated in the 2 1/2 hour event. These wonderful young artists performed for a capacity audience of over 120 people with standing room only! The standard of performance was extremely high.

There were 2 age categories: Juniors (12 to 15 years of age) and Seniors (16 to 25 years of age). They competed for 6 prizes that totalled over $400 in value. Gunther Gorman and Graham French were our volunteer judges. Their task, needless to say, was formidable.

The winners were:
Best Performance Seniors: Trio band – Oscar Litchfield, Dominic Holgate & Harry Paradice
Best Performance Juniors: Burnum Brademann (classical guitar)
Special Judges’ Award: Oscar Litchfield
Special Judges’ Award: Matilda Rose
Special Judges’ Award: Shelby Grace
Special Judges’ Award: Laila Bradshaw
