ENJOY performances by some of the most promising up-and-coming musicians in a concert this weekend.

Sunday, the Helfgott Finalists Concert will take place at the Jetty Memorial Theatre and will showcase five local performers with outstanding abilities.

"The Helfgott Scholarships were established by the Conservatorium back in 1998 as a way of acknowledging the huge input of David and Gillian Helfgott to the musical life of the Coffs Coast," director Carol Hellmers said.

"The aim of the scholarships is to foster learning and enjoyment of music and provide an opportunity for talented young musicians to pursue their study of a musical instrument or singing at a high level.

"There are two scholarships on offer, each valued at $3000 each."

Finalists are William Jeffery (piano), Lachlan Wilkins (violin) and Anna Newlyn (violin) and two vocal finalists Aron Oroszvari and Luke Wright, both baritone singers.

Each will perform a program of music that they have selected to a panel of three judges.

The independent panel this year comprises internationally acclaimed violinist Charmian Gadd, Principal Horn from the Sydney Symphony Robert Johnson, and founding chair of Conservatorium Mid North Coast Leigh Vaughan.

All panel members have specialist music backgrounds and vast experience as performers, teachers and adjudicators in the music business.

A gold coin donation is all that is needed to gain entry to this concert.

"So come along and support these emerging and talented young people - five of the best that Coffs Coast has to offer," Ms Hellmers said.

Doors open at 1.30pm and seating is general admission.

The concert begins at 2pm sharp.
