Classical Star

ARTS CHANNEL – Thursday from 21 June, 8.30pm

The search is on. Musical Director Matthew Barley is searching for a top-class performer who has the ability to broaden the appeal of classical music. Aged between 12 and 19, and already at least grade 8 in their chosen instrument, the winner must have that extra-special something to impress the judging panel of conductor Charles Hazlewood, double bassist Chi-chi Nwanoku, conductor Jason Lai and music industry mogul Steve Abbott. The winner will carry off a top record deal and the chance to launch their dream career.
