    On Friday, 19 October our instrumental music students along with Camperdown College took the bus to the Lighthouse Theatre to see the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Children’s Concert.

  • Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Workshop – 21st September, 2018

    Renee Cowan attended a Music Workshop with musicians from the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra at Camperdown College on Friday, 21 September. At the workshop, the MSO musicians played music from ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Star Wars’. Renee learnt how Alexander Technique exercises, such as snake arms, can improve violin tone/sound. Students asked the MSO musicians questions and learnt about the life of a professional musician. Renee played one of her Band pieces, ‘Chicken on a Fencepost’ with the MSO musicians and Camperdown College students and it sounded pretty good!!  The photo shows just how pleased Renee was to meet MSO violinists, Jim and Jurjen and viola player, Beth and cellist, Allie.
