Newsboys Foundation Regional Music Award

The Newsboys Foundation is proud to support the Newsboys Foundation Regional Music Award, in partnership with the Melbourne Recital Centre.

The Newsboys Foundation Regional Music Award is a music specialist prize for applicants who live, and attend a Victorian Government school, in rural or regional Victoria.

This prize is designed to enable such students to benefit from musical tuition and other opportunities that otherwise may be not open to them. It includes: travel and one week’s accommodation for the student and a parent/guardian in Melbourne and a daily per diem; lessons with a top teacher on the relevant instrument; complimentary tickets to concerts at the Melbourne Recital Centre during that week; mentoring/shadowing opportunities with Melbourne Recital Centre’s artistic and production staff and best endeavours to go ‘behind- the-scenes’ to gain direct contact with industry professionals. The prize week will take place in 2021.
