QSEC - Queensland Solo and Ensemble Competition - 2105
The annual State Champioship event for soloists and ensembles will once again be held at Brisbane Girls Grammar School on 27 June 2015.
There will be no set tests for Senior Soloists this year with the Music Advisory Board deciding to leave the choice of solo unrestricted. Criteria for adjudication will be published closer to the date and level of difficulty will be taken into consideration.
Entry forms will be available on the new QBA website in early April.
