New for 2017! NECOM offers a 3-concert package to elective school music students and their teachers to attend inspirational concerts featuring acclaimed international and Australian musicians, composers and guest artists. Schools are invited to subscribe to Thursdays @ 7pm and receive discount school group tickets, free teacher ticket for every 10 students and priority access to school workshops by the guest musicians on:
- Friday 3 March, 10.00-12noon – Elena Kats-Chernin
- Friday 5 May, 10-12noon – Wind Band Blow-in Workshop w Arcadia Winds
- Thurs 31 August, 11am-2pm – ACO Collective String Workshop.
Participating teachers will receive free resource kits providing invaluable teaching resources with a focus on Stage 5-6 (Music 1 and 2), based on repertoire from each concert. The concerts will present a diverse range of repertoire, styles and composers relevant to the music curriculum and students will hear the music they have studied in class leading up to each concert played live. The concerts are also an invaluable chance for music students to learn about performance style and practice and be motivated by some of Australia’s outstanding musicians and composers.

Attending concerts by outstanding musicians –and getting to meet them afterwards – is a wonderful way for elective music students to learn about performance and be inspired!
