Hubert van der Spuy National Music Competition

Competition week: Hubert van der Spuy National Music Competition
25 – 29 September 2023

We are celebrating 34 years of the Hubert van der Spuy National Music Competition this year! The competition is the brainchild of Professor Hubert van der Spuy, former chairman of the South African Society of Music Teachers (Tygerberg Branch) & widely respected music educator.

The competition is currently the only one of its kind in South Africa and offers a unique opportunity for children aged 13 years/younger to compete against their peers from all across the nation. Several previous winners of the competition have not only gone on to study music at tertiary level, but have also in turn become critically acclaimed performers and educators themselves. On occasion, others have returned to the competition as esteemed members of the jury panel.

48 participants will be joining us for the competition week. The competition week will run from 25 – 29 September at the Hugo Lambrechts Music Centre in Parow.
