Chamber music concert
The annual string chamber music concert has students rehearsing and performing some of the greatest works of the repertoire. Playing solo lines and working in small groups, students quickly develop the fundamental skills of rhythm, intonation and resonance of sound. They learn how to lead , project a solo line and the finely honed teamwork required to balance an ensemble.
In preparation for the Chamber Music Concert, all students take part in a three day intensive rehearsal retreat at Amberley, Edmund Rice Centre. Located in the bushland surrounds of lower Plenty, overlooking the banks of the Yarra river, Amberley’s tranquil environment, surrounded by soaring eucalypts, serves to inspire our young musicians. The music camp allows students to focus intensely in small Chamber ensembles. In between rehearsing and taking part in specialist classes and tutorials, students play table tennis and board games, swim, and generally have lots of fun! The camp culminates with a relaxed and casual concert for family and friends.
