Free cultural event and supporting our youth
The Australian Youth Orchestra organisation runs an annual summer day camp of musical activities and intense tuition for enrolled participants who are aged from 14 to 23 years. They are our musicians of the future and have attended the music camp to learn new skills and perfect their talents, with coaching from some internationally acclaimed musicians, tutors and conductors. These summer schools are a marvelous opportunity to learn more in their chosen instrument away from their regular studies.

From January 10th to 17th, camp participants will have the opportunity to perform for an audience in the summer concert series, which includes eight performances from small ensembles to full orchestral works.
The concerts include thrilling percussion ensembles, challenging bold brass ensembles, and advanced chamber music. When all participants come together in a full orchestra they will perform some original works by the some camp participants, who are studying composition. This will be the world premiere of their work, so this will be a special event for them.

So go along to give them some support, and enjoy something free this summer holidays. Free events usually fill up quickly, so I advise to get there early to secure your seat. The concerts are free, however the organisation which does a brilliant job of encouraging the talent of our youth would welcome donations towards the hall hire.
