The 2019 Art Music Award finalists have been announced by APRA AMCOS and the Australian Music Centre.
The finalists celebrate achievements in Australian contemporary classical, jazz and experimental music. The quantity, the quality and the variety of projects and works included makes a powerful statement about the rich range of talent and the sheer volume of creative work by today’s Australian art music practitioners.
Categories recognising excellence by individuals, organisations and educators, excellence in the areas of experimental music and in jazz, and in regional areas, include a wide range of projects, from local to regional and national.
The Art Music Awards winners in eleven national categories, as well as state or territory awards, will be announced on Monday 19 August at the Great Hall of the University of Sydney, with a live performance program curated by composer-pianist Barney McAll. MC extraordinaire Jonathan Biggins will return as the evening’s host.
