The Goulburn Concerto was composed to bring together beginner string players and professional musicians as equal musical participants on a world class concert stage.
This innovative international collaboration involved:
- Canberra Symphony Orchestra (CSO)
- Composer Mr. Sean O’Boyle AM (Moravian College, USA)
- Music educator and researcher Dr Anita Collins (University of Canberra)
- Violin soloist Ms. Kirsten Williams (Sydney Symphony Orchestra Associate Concert Master)
Together, we created a life-changing opportunity for the young students from Goulburn Public School and forged new directions in music education in Australia.
