Established in 2018 and named after Tasmania's highest mountain peak, the Ossa Musical Performance Prize is generously provided by an anonymous alumnus of the University of Tasmania.
The Prize supports a Graduate or an Undergraduate student (and/or an ensemble) in pursuing excellence in musicianship and performance, and underwrites a state-wide performance tour, with a special focus on the North and North West and East Coast regions.
All styles of music will be eligible for selection. Applicants must be enrolled in a full-time course (minimum 37.5%) at the Conservatorium of Music, University of Tasmania.
The Prize will be awarded to the best individual/applicant, however the individual performer may be accompanied by piano, or by no more than two additional players (three performers in total).
$2,500, plus additional financial support for costs associated with the state-wide tour.
The selection process will consist of three rounds that are described in detail at
