“I am proud of Excelsia’s high-quality teachers, who are internationally renowned musicians, composers and researchers. Excelsia has remained committed to one-to-one instrumental and vocal teaching. It is also one of the few institutions still offering an opportunity to study a second instrument. Our collaborations give our students opportunities to perform and network with musicians outside the institution. The range of small ensembles we offer means that students can experience making music in many different genres, ranging from classical, contemporary, jazz, funk, rock, heavy metal to chamber music. We look forward to having many young students from Sri Lanka to be part of the online music audition”― Dr Lotte Latukefu, Head of Creative and Performing Arts, Excelsia College, Sydney.

“I am excited to announce and introduce this initiative to meet and experience talents from Sri Lanka and I wish many students will express interest to participate. Excelsia College in addition to having great teaching and industry fraternity, offer music program with state of the art teaching and practicing facilities ranging from small studios, purpose build classrooms to technical labs and theatre spaces. I believe an opportunity of this stature will keep us close to the world” – Bobby Abraham, Chief of Admissions, Global Engagement and Partnerships, Excelsia College, Sydney.

“This is a much awaited announcement from Excelsia College, and it is globally known music unites people of different backgrounds, and to many it’s the soundtrack to their lives.
