NATIONAL YOUTH MUSIC COMPETITION 2020 will not take place.

Dear Competitors, Teachers, Parents/Guardians


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.

Kind regards
Michael Maas
Chairman: National Youth Music Foundation
