South West Music Regional Conservatorium partnered with the Edward River Council and the Deniliquin Mental Health Awareness Group to put on an outstanding community event on Saturday 7 October.
In the lead up to the event, the Conservatorium run workshops with various community and educational groups including Gulpa Preschool, Kurrajong, Deniliquin South Public School, U3A, Sing Australia and local high school students. Workshops were music focused with the final concert at the Deniliquin Lantern Festival at the Waring Garden in Deniliquin.
We had the Larissa Burak from the Riverina Conservatorium do workshops with Deniliquin South Public School, U3A, Sing Australia and local high school students. Larissa held the wonderful workshops during the day of the concert The U3A / Sing Australia choir was treated to a workshop of Larissa performing her bandura - a traditional Ukranian instrument.
Kurrajong and Gulpa Preschool worked very hard in the lead up to the concert doing weekly workshops to learn their chosen song.
We had over 1000 people attend Lights On The Lagoon event. It was a big success for our organisation & for the community.
