As Concertmaster of the Darwin Symphony Orchestra , my tasks have extended to Artistic Director of the education program.
This year I will curate 2 programs based on the String Quartet.
The first program will see a tour to schools in Arnhem Land where we present a contemporary interactive string quartet concert for the whole school followed by smaller classroom sessions with music students jamming on songs that they have written with their classmates
The second program is for Darwin Festival’s Family music program featuring Peter Sculthorpe’s “Jabiru Dreaming”.
My aim with these String Quartet shows is to demonstrate the many ways string instruments can be played creating diverse sound worlds.
