SHENTON College String Quartet will attend the Young Artists Chamber Music Program this September to work with some of Australia’s top chamber musicians.

The student musicians were awarded gold at the Australian Strings Association String Festival on June 3 and won a full scholarship to attend the program.

The award, open to school aged string players and pianists, was given to the best established group chosen by audition.

They performed the finale from Dvorak’s American Quartet.

Students will attend the program from September 24 to 27 at the UWA Conservatorium of Music to rehearse masterpieces from the string quartet and string orchestra repertoire.
