Enrolments for 2023 for the Northern Rivers Conservatorium are now open, with a plethora of musical instruments to choose from, and a number of ensembles to join!

Located in Lismore’s CBD in a beautiful heritage building, ‘The Con’, as it is affectionately known, has been providing quality music education to the Northern Rivers community for some 30 years. 

The value of music is well known. It is one of few activities that uses both the logical and creative parts of our brain. It helps us learn numeracy, literacy and emotional skills. It helps our brain ‘think faster’, opening us up to learning and inspiring creativity.

You can join the wonderful Conservatorium community of students, families and teachers through Community Music, Music in Schools, Early Childhood Music and Events and Visiting Artists programs. 

The Con offers everything from individual tuition in the instrument of your choice (vocals, strings, piano, guitar, bass, drums, brass and woodwind), through to a range of ensemble opportunities (currently including the Soul Good Band, Chamber Strings, Youth Jazz Orchestra, and more). Whether you want to play for fun or study for exams, or whether you wish to fly solo or jam in a band, there is something for you at the Conservatorium.

A fantastic and very full program of events will be offered in 2023. In partnership with Musica Viva’s Regional Touring Program, they will present concerts with Ensemble Q, Women In Song, Sonya and Christine, and Nick Russonello. Additionally the NRC will be presenting Lior and Domini Forster, Paul Grabowksy and Gai Bryant’s Palacio De La Rumba.

The Con is pleased to announce that, with the support of the Department of Regional NSW, they will again be offering free concert tickets for all flood-affected members of our community in 2023. Showcasing the talents of their wonderful students is always an important part of the events program with Twilight Concerts, Northern Rivers Youth Orchestra and their Music in Schools Big Play Day, just to name a few. 

For prospective students wishing to enrol in Community Music or Music In Schools programs and seeking further information, please email [email protected], or visit their website: nrcac.edu.au.
