Bringing Worlds Together Through Music…
Open to all ages, styles and instruments, Sounds Across Oceans and BEMAC present the AUTUMN MUSIC SCHOOL at the Queensland Multicultural Centre.
Running over four days at the Queensland Multicultural Centre, from Tuesday, April 4 to Friday, April 7, the Autumn Music School brings together outstanding teaching artists from diverse stylistic and cultural backgrounds to offer mentorships and guidance in the art of improvisation, experimentation, collaboration and composition.
This inclusive and unique educational program that will run from 9AM to 3PM daily is streamed at school-aged children and is suitable for all ages, musical styles and instruments.
Creator Anthony Garcia said his aim was to establish a framework for exploring the boundless nature of music while having lots of fun in the process.
Sounds Across Oceans (SAO) is a music organisation established by composer/educator Dr. Anthony Garcia to explore and promote a more holistic vision of music and its role in society. Through innovative education programs, workshops, presentations and performances that focus on collaboration, improvisation and experimentation SAO builds bridges between genres, cultures and communities.
The four day program will culminate in a special performance giving young people the opportunity to perform to new audiences.
