Dear Competitors, Teachers, Parents/Guardians
NATIONAL YOUTH MUSIC COMPETITION 2020
It is with disappointment that I write to inform you all of the cancellation of this year’s National Youth Music Competition which was to be presented at the Hugo Lambrechts Auditorium, Cape Town from 6 to 10 October 2020.
Due to the present Covid-19 global pandemic and the uncertainties around school terms and examinations; as well as the necessary social distancing requirements, the board of trustees of the National Youth Music Foundation took the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event.
I have been talking to strategic partners who make the annual Competition possible, and we are aiming to present the Competition from 3 to 7 August 2021. With this in mind, we will send out the rules brochure and entry form towards the end of this year.
In the meantime, I would like to encourage you to continue practicing and making music. Music always brings joy and even more so during this time.
Wishing you all the very best.
Chairman: National Youth Music Foundation
