This residential camp is specifically aimed at young musicians who have a passion for making music and refining their craft. Intended as an annual event, students will stay in the picturesque grounds of St George’s College under the watchful supervision and expertise of trained college staff.

Supported by outstanding nationally and internationally recognised conductors and tutors, the Academy aims to nurture musicianship and ensemble skills of tertiary and high school students through large and small ensemble rehearsal and performance.
