TGS in Tune with Qld Symphony Orchestra2nd August 2019
Two Toowoomba Grammar School musicians have been selected for the Queensland Symphony Orchestra’s prestigious Prodigy Project.
This is the second consecutive year that Year 11 student, Julian Lachmund and Year 10 student, Oliver Schubert will participate in the program, after successfully auditioning early in June.
Julian, a violinist, and Oliver, who plays the trumpet, will join other Prodigy Project students to play with the QSO during their concert at Toowoomba’s Empire Theatre on 28 September.
The Prodigy Project students will also take part in the QSO’s Masterclass and Concert that is being hosted by Toowoomba Grammar School on Wednesday, 21 August 2019.
The free Masterclass is an amazing opportunity for promising young musicians from across the region; it involves QSO musicians conducting small group masterclasses for an hour, before performing a short concert.
The instruments represented in the professional development sessions include violin, viola, cello, double bass, flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, French horn, trumpet, trombone, tube and percussion. Specific technique and musicianship strategies will be explored in a masterclass format.
2019 QSO Prodigy students and other advanced level students from around Toowoomba and the Darling Downs have been invited to participate in the event. Other local musicians and their teachers are welcome to be part of the audience.
Following the Masterclass, The QSO will provide a free concert, open to not only those involved in the workshop, but to any music students and teachers from around the region to enjoy.
Anyone who wishes to attend needs to contact program Coordinator, Pam Lowry – Education Qld Symphony Orchestra at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, 9 August 2019.
