The Musica Viva Australia Strike A Chord National Music Championship Finalists have been announced!

This is the largest competition of its kind and is now in its third year.

The 2022 Championship saw a record number of 119 secondary school ensembles (representing 445 students) from all over Australia, vying for a total prize pool worth over $40,000, comprising of cash and professional development prizes, as well as interstate performance engagements.

Groups submitted a video recording of their performance, from which 12 Finalists were selected nationally.

Among the 12 Finalists chosen to proceed to perform LIVE at the Strike A Chord Grand Final in Melbourne this August, are TWO groups featuring Canterbury College students:

The IncrediBows: A collaborative string quartet between Canterbury students Haydn and George Li, and their childhood friends.



Canterbury’s very own Trio Bellissimo: Starring the incredibly talented Isabella Oxenbridge, and again brothers Haydn Li and George Li.


It’s a remarkable feat that both groups are coached by Canterbury’s Coordinator of Piano and Chamber Music – Mr Tim Li, and they are two of only three groups representing all of Queensland in the Australian Grand Finals.

Mr Li also coached the Amogus Trio who WON this competition last year, so let’s go for two years in a row…

Tickets for the Grand Final in Melbourne on Saturday 27 August are on sale now.

You can also tune in via their FREE livestream.
