Kendall National Violin Competition

One of the most exciting events on the Australian music calendar is the annual Kendall National Violin Competition. The competition's history dates from 1999 when renowned Australian luthier Graham Caldersmith made the generous offer to donate a concert violin each year as a prize. Young violinists (maximum age 23 on 1 January) who are citizens or residents of Australia are invited to compete for this fine instrument which is made from Australian timbers. Many of the approximately 150 young violinists who have competed to date, particularly past winners and finalists, have gone on to major achievements in Australia and overseas. The competition is administered by a small committee of volunteers under the Artistic Directorship of Violinist Goetz Richter, Associate Professor of Violin at the Conservatorium of Sydney. Since 2004, semi-finals have been held as public performances in Sydney. The final is always held in Kendall, the home of the competition.
