There is a non-competitive period available on each day.  Students can enter ANY non-comp period (Fri , Sat or Sun), regardless of ability.

Once final numbers are known, these periods will be split into suitably sized sections by AMEB level and entrants notified.  All non-competitive entrants will receive a souvenir medal and adjudication report.

This year we have expanded the Concerto competition to three sections, organised by AMEB level.
