The Recording Studio Wants you!!Wed Jun 13 2018
The Recording Studio is a new factual entertainment series that enables everyday Australians to record the most important song of their life. It’s a place where stories can be told and captured forever.
They say every person has one great book inside them… at The Recording Studio, we say everyone has one amazing song inside just waiting to get out.
Under the guidance and mentorship of Australia’s top musical producers, directors and engineers, the ABC is throwing open the doors to its world class recording studios and offering everyday Australians the opportunity of a lifetime; the chance to record a song that is special to them, or to someone else.

One song can change your life. It’s time to hit record.
ABC and FremantleMedia Australia are looking for people with a need to celebrate, overcome or to reach out to someone…through music.
If you have a unique purpose for wanting to record a particular song, or if you know someone who would benefit from this extraordinary musical experience – then we want to hear from you. Further details and application forms can be found here…www.therecordingstudio.com.au

‘New Choral Composition Prize accepting entries’
Bel a cappella’s inaugural Prize takes Australian music travelling
Sydney chamber choir Bel a cappella will mark Music Director Anthony Pasquill’s 10 year anniversary with the choir with a tour to Russia and the Baltic in 2021. In early April they launched an initiative linked to the tour that promises to showcase new Australian music to the world.
The Bel a cappella Choral Composition Prize will award 3 Australian composers $1500 each for original a cappella choral works for up to 8 voice parts.
Each of the 3 winning works will have its world premiere in one of the cities in the 2021 tour (to be chosen by the awarded composer), including St Petersburg, Stockholm, Helsinki, Tallin and Riga. Their Australian premiere will be at the next concert Bel performs upon their return to Australia.
Pasquill believes that Australian choral music certainly has the capacity to match the depth and breadth of that being composed and performed in the traditional choral music countries of northern Europe and this Prize will give him and Bel a cappella the opportunity to demonstrate that.
Choir president Bruce Watson says, "When we launched our fundraising campaign for this Prize we were excited about creating an opportunity to bring new Australian choral music to the world. Now we also know we'll be supporting some local composers through this terrible time when so much work for musicians has vanished."
Bel a cappella believes their Choral Composition Prize will make a big difference to composers in this difficult time for the Arts across the globe, providing both a sense of creative purpose and significant prize money to the three awarded composers.
