What is it?

Four days of chamber music under the guidance of Australia's best chamber musicians.


How does it work?

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.

Who is it for?

Open to students aged 10 - 17 of the instruments below:

  • Violin, viola or cello students who have been playing for at least 2 years

  • Piano students (Autumn Academy only) at least Grade 6 AMEB (or equivalent)

Is there an audition?

No audition is necessary however registered participants will be required to submit a video of themselves playing one or two set excerpts and a chosen piece. This assists with placing students in ensembles. Students will be placed in one of two streams according to their level:

  • Masters stream - students up to approximately grade 6 level

  • Elite stream - students approximately grade 6+ (places are limited)
