MELBOURNE RECITAL CENTRE Newsboys Foundation Regional Music Award Newsboys Foundation is supporting Melbourne Recital Centre to conduct the Newsboys Foundation Regional Music Award. The Award provides a week-long, immersive learning opportunity with a range of Melbourne classical music organisations for a regional Victorian music student. The Newsboys Foundation Regional Music Award is awarded as part of the annual Bach Competition conducted by the Melbourne Recital Centre. Newsboys Foundation Annual Bach Performance Skills Workshop for Young Artists The Newsboys Foundation supported a one-day workshop held in the Melbourne Recital Centre’s Salon in March 2016. The workshop included opportunities to listen and learn, as well as perform individually and as an ensemble. The workshop featured three distinguished teachers in strings, woodwind and piano. Student participants had the opportunity to learn in a masterclass situation (i.e. they played for the workshop leader and received feedback) with their teachers observing. The day ended with all participants – teachers and students – coming together to perform as an ensemble. Rural and regional students were encouraged to attend and received priority places in the workshop. GRANTS Mallee Accommodation & Support Program Kids Under Cover Melbourne Recital Centre
