Skilled musicians from around Launceston will be filling the Princess Theatre and Earl Arts Centre with classical tunes as the Launceston Competitions continues this week.
Sunday marked the start of the classical music section with young pianists, flautists and violinists all demonstrating their talent.
Violinist Micah Kenzie, 15, has been playing the violin for eight years, participating in the Launceston Competitions in each of those years.
"It's something to work towards with practice with the competitions because if you didn't have them then the practice would have nothing to work towards," Micah said.
"I love performing in the comps."
Micah first became enamoured with the violin when she went to Symphony Under the Stars.
"That's where I first saw the violin and I said to mum 'that's what I want to learn,' so for my seventh birthday I got a violin," she said.
Micah said she would like to make a career out of playing the violin and hopes to attend the Conservatorium of Music.
