Earlier this month, the Rob Guest Endowment held auditions in Melbourne and Sydney to search for this year’s winner of the Rob Guest Endowment Award. The judges saw over 200 applications, and after careful consideration, the 30 Semi-Finalists for the 2017 Rob Guest Endowment Award were chosen to progress within the competition.

On the 16th of October, the Semi-Finalists will commence their Semi Final audition day at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Melbourne, where the judges will determine the six finalists for the 2017 Rob Guest Endowment Award.

We would like to give a special thanks to our judges and accompanists for the 2017 first round auditions. Thank you to Kellie Dickerson, Andrew Pole, Michael Tyack, Geoffrey Castles, Gary Young, James Simpson and Hayden Barltrop.

Well done to everyone who applied and auditioned this year, and congratulations to our 30 Semi-Finalists!
