What is it?
Four days of chamber music under the guidance of Australia's best chamber musicians.
Students experience tutorials and rehearsals with two small ensembles, chamber orchestra and fun and informative workshops each day. Pieces rehearsed during the week are performed at a Final Concert on the last evening.
Students receive their music 3 to 4 weeks in advance so that they can feel fully prepared for playing in their ensembles.
Students may attend as individuals or with a pre-formed group, however applications must be submitted individually.
Ages 10 - 17
Open to string players (violin, viola, cello) from Grade 2 level upwards
Due to limited pianos at the venue, Spring Academy in 2022 is currently not taking piano students - please enquire if pianists would like to attend.
Please enquire if you are unsure of your level.
