Congratulations to State Honours Ensemble Program Musicians

Last weekend (June 1 – 3), Queensland Conservatorium – Griffith University hosted the second State Honours Ensemble Music Program (SHEP) – Middle School. This two and a half day program provided outstanding instrumentalists and vocalists with the opportunity to participate in instrumental ensemble and choral workshops with other like-minded musicians from around South East Queensland. The event culminated in four stunning concert performances on the final day in the Conservatorium Theatre. 

This well-respected program brought together the finest young musicians, under the tutelage of a team of eminent international and national conductors, in a world-class environment.

Students were nominated for SHEP by their School Music teachers and those with the highest skill levels were offered positions in the program. This year, 21 students from A.B. Paterson College were accepted into the program for 2018 (with two students on reserve) and they are all to be congratulated on their selection and representation at this prestigious event.
