- ATKV Musiq 2010: 2nd Round Candidates

ATKV-Muziq, a classical music competition for young adult musicians with prize money worth R 100 000, is the ATKV’s annual contribution to classical music in South Africa. However, the ATKV decided to stimulate vocal training in South Africa; to stimulate opera in South Africa and to also provide an additional scholarship opportunity for singing students by implementing the Muziqanto Vocal Scholarship as part of ATKV-Muziq.

The first round took place recently.  Participants in the instrumental categories were limited to young adult musicians in the age group 15 to 27 years.  Singers up to the age of 32 years were allowed to enter for the Muziqanto Vocal Scholarship. Participants entered in the following instrumental categories of the competition:
