***Top Security/ Frank Maher Classical Music Awards 2020***

Deadline for submissions: Friday 11 September 2020, 5pm
Competition: October 2020 – Date to be confirmed

Top Security is delighted to announce that the Frank Maher Classical Music Awards WILL be taking place this year. It will be run subject to prevailing Covid-19 protocols and this means some necessary changes from previous years. While our finalists will be performing live as usual, it will be for the judges only and not for an invited audience.

The Awards have been running for almost 20 years and are now the largest classical music competition for secondary schools in the Republic of Ireland.  Many winners have continued their studies at internationally acclaimed academies and gone on to perform at high profile venues all over the world. Open to sixth year students only, the €5,000 prize must be used by the winner to attend a recognised place of tuition, a course of study in Ireland or abroad or on any purchase necessary for the development of their career. The finalists will each receive a €300 bursary.

The closing date for entries is Friday 11th September at 5pm. The date and venue are not confirmed yet, but it will be held in October 2020. 

Full details of the 2020 Awards, including date, venue, rules, and the application form for downloading, will be posted onto the Awards website in mid-August.
