Young talent on show in Martin Place

Enjoy a free lunchtime concert, Live in Martin Place, on Friday April 12, with some of the city’s best up-and-coming young musicians performing special acoustic shows.

The two-hour event will showcase musicians aged 12-24 as part of the City of Sydney’s annual Youth Week in the City program, which celebrates the contribution young people make to the community.

“This event has been organised by young people in the city who’ve worked hard to give budding musicians a chance to show off their musical talents,” the Lord Mayor Clover Moore said. “If you’re in the city on the day or work nearby I encourage you to stop by the amphitheatre in Martin Place to hear some emerging musicians – they could be next year’s chart sensations.”

Twelve young musicians will be performing on the day, including country music star Sabrina Soares, 16, pop princess Billie-Jade Chant, 22, rapper MC Dazzle (Pascale Riley), 17, and folk-pop singer Lucy Neville, 17.

At just 16, Sabrina Soares has been heralded for her country singing and songwriting skills. A graduate of the CMAA Academy of Country Music in Tamworth, she won first prize in the female junior category of the Canberra Country Music Festival. Sabrina was also a finalist in the Songsalive! Australia Song Comp and earns pocket money busking on the streets of Newtown and Summer Hill.
