Ten Townsville Grammar School students have been selected to be part of the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University’s State Honours Ensemble Programme Queensland (SHEP), which will be held Brisbane during the school holidays in September.
Two of these students, Angus Marsh-Brown and Jessica Aslin, both Year 10, have also been selected to represent Queensland in Seattle in November for the Pacific Honours Ensemble Programme (PHEP), as part of a reciprocal exchange programme between Western International Band Clinic and Queensland Conservatorium’s SHEP Queensland.
SHEP will be held from the 29th of September to 2nd of October 2 2016, at Griffith University’s South Bank campus in Brisbane, offering secondary students an intensive environment of musical excellence under a team of national and international experts.
A number of American College students have also been selected and these students will travel to Brisbane in September to attend SHEP Queensland.
Last year’s SHEP Queensland (in Brisbane) saw 875 young musicians, selected from 1800 nominees, descend on Queensland Conservatorium, with similar numbers expected for 2016. Successful nominees will again be offered the opportunity to participate in Wind and String Orchestras, Vocal Ensembles and a Celtic String Ensemble; and for the second year - a Symphony Orchestra and Big Band.
SHEP Queensland culminates in five Grand Finalé Concerts, open to the public, in the Conservatorium Theatre on Sunday 2nd of October, 2016.
