The CMA Young Artist Award

The inaugural CMA Young Artist Award was launched by Chamber Music Adelaide in July 2018 to support emerging South Australian classical artists. The CMA Young Artist Award provides a cash prize and professional performance opportunities for early career classical instrumentalists and vocalists, supported by generous South Australian philanthropists, our CMA Champions.

Three outstanding young artists are the finalists for the 2018 award. They will perform before the judging panel and an audience and the winner will be announced at the conclusion of their performances.
