About the Branch

Our annual programme includes the following:

  • During May/June each year we hold piano and violin workshops for students both in Newcastle and Muswellbrook.
  • In late August the Junior Music Festival takes place
  • September – a further piano workshop in Newcastle
  • From 2007 – Quarterly student concerts for performance practice will be held on a Thursday evening at the end of each term.
  • Other ‘special’ functions/seminars are held from time to time with the aim of involving teachers.
  • Our involvement with other musical events in the area includes annual sponsorship of prizes and a scholarship in support of the Lake Macquarie Eisteddfod which is held in October/November.
  • Newcastle branch also puts $500 towards the Nan Price Memorial Scholarship which is awarded to a student studying piano full time at the Conservatorium/University of Newcastle.
