AUSTA Q is a very active chapter which has enjoyed much support from our members over the years.

Our regular events include:
• AUSTA Q Reading Day and AGM (early February each year) – a read through of new repertoire for school string ensembles, including a significant contribution from local composers.
• AUSTA Q Strings Festival (early August each year) – where students perform to a small but encouraging audience with an accompanist provided, and each receives a trophy and report from one of our many AUSTA volunteers.

In addition to this we usually run 1-2 workshops per term for our members on a range of string related topics with local and overseas presenters. Recent overseas guests include Aaron Minsky, Mimi Zweig and Mark Wood. In 2015 Brisbane also hosted the AUSTA National Conference.

We are also keen to support events happening around our big state in whatever way we can. We have assisted Bundaberg for several years in putting on a Strings Festival, and have provided music for a number of centres to host their own reading days. Please let us know if you have any requests.

We welcome your suggestions and hope to see you at some of our events, or even helping out as a volunteer.
