Wagner Society Encouragement Award 2021

In 2021, the Wagner Society in Queensland Encouragement Award was awarded to Conservatorium student bass Vikram Goonawardena.

Each year, our Society offers an Encouragement Award valued at $1,000 to a current tertiary student who, through performance in a major or minor role in a Conservatorium Opera Production, best demonstrates vocal potential for a future career in large scale romantic operas in the style of Richard Wagner or Richard Strauss. If, in a particular year, no candidate satisfies these criteria, then the Encouragement Award is not given.

The adjudicators are Heads of the Vocal and Opera Departments of the Conservatorium and all producers of opera programs during the year. A decision is made during the end-of-year examinations period. The Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University is responsible for the administration of the Award.

This Encouragement Award is separate from all other awards, grants and donations provided by the Wagner Society in Queensland.
