THE KENDALL NATIONAL VIOLIN COMPETITION
For almost two decades the Kendall National Violin Competition has forged a major opportunity for artistic development for young violinists in Australia. Past finalists and winners have embarked on impressive careers and the Competition is proud to have encouraged these talented artists on their way.
history dates from 1999 when renowned Australian luthier Graham
Caldersmith made the generous offer to donate a concert violin each
year as a prize. Young violinists (maximum age 23 on 1 January)
who are citizens or residents of Australia are invited to compete
for this fine instrument which is made from Australian timbers.
Kendall, on the
mid-north coast of New South Wales, has a history of timber milling
as well as many areas of scenic forest preserves and nature reserves.
The village is named for Australian poet, Henry Kendall, who was
also the first NSW Inspector of Forests. In recognition of this
most appropriate use of Australian timber. Forestry Corporation of NSW, a division
of the Department of Primary Industry, has sponsored the Competition
since its inception.
is administered by a small committee of volunteers under the Artistic
Directorship of Violinist Goetz Richter, Associate Professor of Violin at the Conservatorium of Sydney.
Since 2004, semifinals
have been held as public performances in Sydney. The final is always
held in Kendall, the home of the Competition.
