Music By Youth Project at Bellingen Fine Music Festival

String workshops for local primary school students are a regular feature of the Bellingen Fine Music Festival “Music By Youth” Project.  The strings workshop last year with the Acacia Quartet was hugely successful. We are delighted that Acacia is offering the same opportunity for primary school students this year.  The workshop will be on Thursday 21 Sep at Bellingen Public School. Students from our school will be attending along with students from Bellingen Public School and Casuarina Steiner School in Coffs Harbour.

Classical Busking is also a part of the “Music By Youth” Project.  Listen to our students and students from other schools play in town on Hyde St and Church St Saturday morning 23 Sep.
