Young Stars Shine at The Cooma Music Competition 2012.

This year’s Cooma Music Competition was a huge success. The Competition is now in it’s seventh year and over one hundred musicians performed in over eighty performances during the daytime heats. The heats were then followed by the Finals Concert which was made up the winners of the heats plus guest performances by the Jindabyne Central Stage Band, sildenafil and the Snowy Mountains Ensemble. Judging for this event was done by local musical maestros, information pills Robert Shearer, Rodney Clancy and Matt Charlesworth. Also Tessa Bremner, a renouned international opera, musical theatre and dance director and librettist helped with the adjudication. Tessa Bremner has worked many of the world’s leading musicians including Dame Joan Sutherland, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa as well as Composers, Leonard Bernstein and Benjamin Britten. Her thoughts on stage presentation were much appreciated by the performers during a marathon day and evening of music. Each contestant received a detailed performance report which the judges hoped would help perfect their skills. The performers competed for medals, trophies, and cash prizes which totalled over $1000.

    What a good looking bunch of musos! I hope you all sounded as good as you looked!
    Congratulations Allan on another tireless effort! I hope everyone in Cooma appreciates everything you do.

    Cooma is truly blessed to have you both…..NOW, for God’s sake, have a holiday! (Iran is very nice at this time of year, I heard on the grapevine)
