AUSTA NSW Report May 2018

NSW Report May 2018

We have had a quiet start to the year as we have had a change of president and some new committee members so we have had a lot to learn very quickly.

We have a busy few months ahead, with our annual String Festival in June and a pedagogy talk by Goetz Richter in May.

Some highlights of the year which are already planned are masterclasses with Robin Wilson and Julian Smiles, and a viola day with Roger Benedict.

Caron Chan is going to give an AMEB workshop in July and we are hoping to have the concertmaster of the SSO, Andrew Haveron give a masterclass as well.

This year, we are sponsoring the St George Eisteddfod with a $1000 prize for their Concerto Competition.

Our Reading Day will be in October and a special ensemble workshop.

Hopefully by the end of the year, AUSTA NSW will have a much bigger profile and we will start to grow the string community into a dynamic and diverse tour de force!
