Myall U3A is privileged to sponsor this visit each year, at the start of a Northern Tour which this year extends as far as Coffs Harbour.  David tells us that each year’s ensemble of students enjoys their time here with us as much as we enjoy meeting them as we host them from Friday lunch until after Sunday breakfast. 

Each year sees a different mix of instruments, and we look forward to the visit in August 2018. 

Visit by Sydney Conservatorium of Music Graduates

By Barbara Lyle

Last week’s visit by David Miller and graduate students from Sydney Conservatorium of Music was highly successful, as anticipated. 

There is always an enthusiastic response when the children from Tea Gardens Public School are given the opportunity to play the instruments and everyone vied for the chance to play Will Nichols’ harp.

Will had demonstrated the use of the 7 pedals and explained how they changed the pitch of the notes.  Some fortunate children had already tried Jessica An’s and Maria Fedotov’s violins, Rachel Williams’ viola and Alister Guiney’s cello and three of the children had also tried their hand at conducting the ensemble as they played a variety of music. 

Saturday afternoon’s public concert was thoroughly enjoyed by an appreciative audience, listening to a range of beautiful music performed by talented young people, at times accompanied on the piano by Head of Performance Studies David Miller A.M.
