ATKV OFFERS R72,000 (article first published : 2006-05-9)

ATKV- Muziq, a classical music competition for young adult musicians, is the ATKVís annual contribution to classical music in South Africa. Total prize money is worth R72,000.

The first round will take place in May. Participants are limited to young adult musicians in the age group 16 to 27 years, age as on December 31, 2006, with singers up to the age of 30 years.

The minimum requirements to be able to take part are a UNISA (Practical) Grade 6, or an equivalent qualification of a similar institution. Participants may enter in the categories of Singing; Piano; Organ (includes harpsichord); Strings; Wind instruments (wood or brass); Other instruments (harp, percussion, classical guitar, accordion, recorder), and Chamber music ensemble.

The first round in KwaZulu-Natal will be held on May 19. Candidates who do not reside within the borders of South Africa or who are prevented from attending the first round, may obtain permission from the project organiser to submit a video tape recording of their work for the first round evaluation.

The second and third rounds as well as the gala event of ATKV-Muziq take place from September 6 to 9 at the conservatory on the campus of the University of Stellenbosch.

At the end of the third round, the category winners will be announced and each will receive R4,500. A merit prize of R3,000 may be awarded for exceptional work performed in the third round. A prize of R1,000 will be awarded for the best interpretation of a South African work in each category during the second round and there will be a bonus prize of R3,000 for the overall interpretation of a South African work.

As Mozartís birthday is being commemorated all over the world during 2006, a bonus prize of R2,500 will therefore be awarded for the best interpretation of a Mozart work during the third round.

The category winners as well as the winner of the best interpretation of a South African work, the winner of the Mozart prize and the winner of the merit prize, will perform at a gala event in the Endler Hall at the conservatory on the campus of the University of Stellenbosch on September 9. At this event the prizes will be officially awarded with R25,000 going to the overall winner.
