SENIOR VOCAL & ARIA COMPETITION 

Unfortunately, Covid has struck again. The difficult decision has been made by the NPACS committee to cancel our 2022 Easter competition. The risk of spreading the Omicron variant is just too great. our committee have worked tirelessly to plan this annual event over the past months, and we know that our competition community will be as disappointed as we are about this news.

Le's hope we can have our Easter Comps in 2023!

The aria competitions, which began in 1993, are a great opportunity for our young singers to develop their talent, gain confidence, learn from each performance, give pleasure to the audience and have the opportunity to see their potential recognized.

These competitions are truly an amazing experience. For more information on the rules, dates, adjudicators, prizes and set pieces, please scroll down and follow the links provided.

Masterclass

Adjudicator Ravil Atlas will hold a 2hr Masterclass on Sunday 17th April at 10am. The location will be confirmed closer to the event. This Masterclass will specifically help the Aria finalists and those interested in furthering their careers but will prove invaluable to all Aria contestants as they watch and learn from a maestro. Ravil will focus on 'performing' your Aria by painting the scenario and adding drama and any of the arts that will help bring your Aria to life. Members of the public are welcome to observe at a cost of $15, and $10 for other NPACS Contestants.
