Three large ensemble projects involving 2nd and 3rd year Music Studies and Music Education students participating in ensemble workshops, rehearsals and performances. The ensembles will prepare an hour-long performance program to be presented at the Conservatorium and in a regional educational setting and / or in a socially disadvantaged area of Sydney.
