Bandlink Newcastle

Bandlink Newcastle is a  2 day workshop for primary students to give them the opportunity to play in a large ensemble under the guidance of professional conductors and musicians. They learn specialised instrumental and ensemble skills which culminate in a concert at the end of the workshop.
The mentoring program gives secondary students the skills to assist as tutors in the workshops. They are able to share their skills and learn to relate and relay information.

Activity for this program is temporarily suspended for the foreseeable future to support efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 and maintain the safety and wellbeing of students and staff.
