The Voice of AOJI

May 20 Grand Finale at Sydney Opera House

Perform with Australian Top Artists

About the Event

“Music brings us together!”

“Every year, my team and I meet hundreds of students from different countries and regions. Although these students began their studies in childhood, many sadly give up as they arrive in Australia.

“To give students a chance to showcase their musical talents, my team and myself created a free-entry music platform to help students achieve their musical dreams. No matter where students come from, what languages they speak, or what backgrounds they have, music brings us together. The Voice of AOJI was created to facilitate communication with music.” – Aileen Wang, Director of AOJI Education Australia.

On May 20th, 2019, The Voice of AOJI competition will be held in the world-famous Sydney Opera House; the competition will be judged by some of the top musicians in Australia. Participating musicians can be vocal or instrumental, and can perform as individuals or groups.

The first round of online selections happens in March. The candidates selected during the first-round will receive professional musical training in April; after this training, finalists will be selected for The Voice of AOJI competition in May. Over 10 media channels will be reporting the event, with performances in front of the distinguished judges.

During 2017’s The Voice of AOJI event, more than a million votes were cast online for the 100 musical performances that had been submitted. Throughout the voting period, the program’s website saw more than 2.3 million visits. Several media outlets reported on the event, including Sina.com, Sing Tao Daily, and the City of Syndey’s “What’s On” website.
