Winners of the AMAA Winter Music Competition

Last December, AMADEUS Music and Arts Academy (AMAA) launched an Online Winter Music Competition. It was an opportunity for our students to share their wonderful talent with the community despite the difficult circumstances and challenges of not being able to have face-to-face music lessons with their respective teachers.

Some of our students were so excited that they sent us more than one submission! We were delighted to receive so many videos from our students, all of which were shared on our Facebook page during the holiday break. We hope that the videos have warmed your hearts as it definitely did for us!

We would like to congratulate each and every student who has taken part in this competition for their effort and hard work. We are hopeful to be able to organise live music concerts for our students as soon as the situation improves in the near future.

Out of the numerous submissions, 10 performances were recognized for their outstanding talent. The selected students have been awarded concert tickets to the AMADEUS Festival taking place on campus from 3 – 10  July 2021!

And the winners are….
