A series of free family concerts at The University of Western Australia's Claremont campus will feature an exciting mix of solo popular and classical music, singing and drama performed by primary, secondary and tertiary students.
The Australian Music Examinations Board Family Day on Sunday, 26 July has been organised to showcase the AMEB, which has a 120-year history and is Australia's leading program of external examinations in music (including vocal), speech, drama and performance. Half-hour concerts in the Kurrajong Theatre at 11am, 12.30pm, 2pm and 3.30pm promise items as varied as the contemporary song "The Wind Beneath My Wings", pieces played on trumpet, tuba, trombone, saxophone, clarinet, flute, piano and violin, and monologues including Bottom's from "A Midsummer Night's Dream".
As well, there will be a display of current AMEB music publications and speech resource books.
Visitors will be able to tour the AMEB examination rooms and administration centre and meet examiners and staff.
"The AMEB encourages young talent, providing feedback to students and opportunities for teachers through workshops and concerts," said the Board's Academic Development Officer, Barry Palmer.
