Intermediate Melbourne String Ensemble
IMSE, also directed by Fintan Murphy, began in 2014. IMSE advances the skills of players who are performing at a high level but are not quite ready for the senior group. Students in IMSE develop ensemble skills and the technical mastery necessary for advanced ensemble participation. To develop their musical teamwork, the IMSE performs unconducted.
The expected entry standard is as follows;
- Violin: AMEB Grade 7 plus
- Cello/Viola: AMEB Grade 5 plus
Rehearsals are scheduled on Saturdays during school terms in Kew from 1pm-3pm
Melbourne String Ensemble acknowledges the Wurundjeri, Woi-Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation, upon whose Country we are based and recognises their continuing connections to community, culture and country. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
