AUSTA VIC – 40 Years of Newsletters
The first AUSTA VIC Newsletter was published at the end of 1978 and covered AUSTA events of 1979. The very first newsletter included a report on the National Executive meeting held in November 1978, details about a “Play-In” held in February of 1979 (costing $1.00 per session for adults and 50 cents for students) and a list of Summer Schools being held throughout Australia. There was also news about upcoming visits from violinist Jack Glatzer and cellist Anner Bylsma. We hope to have old issues of newsletters accessible on the website soon.
