Next for the Northern Rivers Conservatorium is a collaboration with Musica Viva Australia – a public performance in the Concert Room.

On November 12 they will be hosting Chinese trio San Ureshi – the name means ‘joy of the trio’ – which consists of guzheng (Chinese zither), erhu (Chinese fiddle), and percussion. 

Since its establishment in 2019, San Ureshi has been experimenting with various cultures, soundscapes and textures, breaking boundaries through their projects and compositions. 

Also, the Youth Jazz Orchestra have been busy with a number of projects including performing at the Lismore Show, collaborating with The Hot Potato Band for the Music In Schools Big Play Day, and supporting our vocalists for the Singers’ Showcase in December.

Additionally there are several in-house Twilight Concerts scheduled, showcasing talented students to an always appreciative audience of parents and friends, as well as the Very Merry (Thursday) Markets for which they will provide musical entertainment: Justin Bannister and the Soul Good Band will be bringing the good vibes and Rochelle Wright will be inspiring the kids with her engaging early-childhood music presentation. These are to be held on December 8 and 15, from 4.30pm.
