For the second year, BBVic Showcase has produced a fully online music competition for B’nai B’rith Victoria. As the only Jewish Showcase in Australia, B’nai B’rith provides a unique opportunity for Jewish musicians, who are usually unable to compete in officially recognised showcases as most are held on Shabbat.
BBVic Showcase is open to primary, secondary and tertiary solo musicians aged 8-25 years, across a number of instruments including piano, strings, vocal, woodwind and brass. This year, for the first time, percussion was also included.
Given the current COVID19 environment, all entrants were required to submit their piece online to be adjudicated. All 37 entrants were supported through the video heats process, with several schools offering ensemble performance video support, which will be shown during the online finals concert.
Now, B’nai B’rith Victoria Showcase is in the process of filming and editing the finals concert, which is sure to be exceptional, given the talent that is included.
The winner will receive a B’nai B’rith Victoria scholarship of $1000.
Congratulations to this year’s finalists.
The BBVic Showcase 2021 Finals Concert is on 29 August at 1:30pm. To book tickets, visit trybooking.com/BTDPJ
