Music Matters – August 2015

Posted by in MusicMatters | July 31, 2015

This month was a very busy one for all our staff at SWMRC. Along with welcoming some new instrumental and vocal teachers, new students and schools programmes, one of our lucky students got to perform on the Concert Hall stage in the Opera House alongside members of the Australian World Orchestra. This was a great example of Regional Conservatoriums forging partnerships with organisations that will give music students from the bush opportunities of a lifetime.

This month, please remember and support our AGM, which occurs on the 27th August at 7:00PM. We would love some input from community members that have some vision and dynamic to join our very generous and innovative standing Board members.

Thank you to all that came and enjoyed the Janet Seidel Trio that played some sultry Jazz last month. This month’s treat features world-class classical guitar set to narration and promises to be something really special. I hope you can make the Cordover Brothers.

Yet another school term has flown by with alarming speed. Our third term will be upon us in no time, so I would like to advise of several exciting things happening at your Music Con, in the next session.

South West Music RC AGM

The Annual General Meeting of South West Music Regional Conservatorium will take place on Thursday 27th August at 7:00PM onsite at 162 Hardinge St. Deniliquin, (behind Purtill’s). Two members of the Board will be declaring their positions open. I would encourage anyone with expertise in governance, financial management, marketing (or indeed some other talent you may envisage as being useful) that feels a desire to give back to community by offering their wisdom to an Organisation that enriches the town through musical experiences to come along and get involved.

We would very much like to welcome back to Deni, one the Conservatorium’s finest students, Shane McGrath who is returning to his hometown, to teach and perform through SWMRC.

Since being selected in the Schools Spectacular in 2007 as a featured artist he went on to graduate through the talent development program in 2009. Since then he has been working as a musician in Sydney. His expertise spans jazz, funk, rock, and modern finger style. Welcome home Shane and Ellie!

Janet Seidel Trio

Jazz at it’s best. Janet Seidel Vocals, Joe Chindamo piano, and Chuck Morgan Guitar bring some of the classic jazz standards to Deni.
