We have had a fairly quiet start to the year with just one event so far. We held a Bowing Workshop with Rosemary Macphail presenting a session called ‘To Bounce or Not to Bounce – That is the Question?’

A variety of violinists, both teachers and students and some cellists came and found that 2 hours disappeared very quickly when discussing the intricacies of bowing! Everyone found it a most worthwhile workshop, thanks Rose.

Now we are in the midst of preparing for our annual String Festival to be held on the first weekend in June. Doreen Cumming, violinist for Orange NSW and principal 2nd violin in the Canberra Symphony Orchestra is coming to adjudicate for us. We are looking forward to a very busy weekend with many fine performances, especially in the Junior and Senior Concerto Competitions.

In Late June we will let our hair down with a Pot-Luck Member’s Dinner, then after the National Conference, we will hold our annual Reading Day on 29th July.

ACT members will receive a $300- subsidy to assist with air fares to the Conference.

Many thanks to all the enthusiastic committee members who so willingly give their time to help organise our ACT events.
