Camerata Strings is our youngest string ensemble that allows beginner string players the opportunity to participate in their first performance group and learn the fundamentals of ensemble technique, as well as working under the direction of a conductor for the first time. Camerata strings is conducted by Mandy Philipse.
Music for Canberra believes strongly in the importance of performance in improving the self-confidence and musical ability of students of all ages, and in line with this, Camerata String players participate in our String Stream concerts at the end of each term (see Events to view upcoming performances), and have the chance to perform at other community events throughout the year.
Approximate standard: Beginner to AMEB 1 level, or equivalent (participants are expected to be taking additional individual instrumental tuition in addition to orchestra; this can be arranged with a Music For Canberra tutor if a student doesn’t already have a private teacher).
