The Helpmann Academy Award for Voice is available to vocalists who are final year students or graduates from selected programs from the Elder Conservatorium of Music (University of Adelaide).
The award is valued at $8,000 and provides the opportunity for the recipient to undertake a self-directed and tailored program that will further develop their burgeoning career. The recipient will be empowered to seek out unique training in areas of interest, develop work, record or tour, gain valuable experience, and build networks. The funding provides the opportunity for the recipient to develop their skills and experience, locally, nationally, or internationally.
The Helpmann Academy Award for Voice, generously funded by Dr Rob Lyons, aims to support and inspire the future endeavours of South Australia’s emerging vocalists. The recipient will have the opportunity to undertake significant activities that align with their career objectives and facilitate the next steps in achieving their goals.
“Receiving this award actually made the dream of my own EP feasible and within arm’s reach. It also served as a huge encourager and provides a support team throughout my creative development.”
