Mu­si­cians men­tored by best

The Western Star - - Life -

THE mu­si­cal senses of Roma were de­lighted on Wed­nes­day night, as the Queens­land Sym­phony Or­ches­tra per­formed at the Cul­tural Cen­tre along­side many of our own mu­si­cians.

The re­gional tour, in its fourth con­sec­u­tive year, col­lab­o­rated with Mara­noa Sym­phony Or­ches­tra, Roma High School Strings, Wal­lum­billa State School Con­cert Band, Roma State Col­lege and St John’s

Col­lege in de­liv­er­ing work­shops with stu­dents, pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment ses­sions for teach­ers and per­form­ing a series of free con­certs for stu­dents and the wider com­mu­nity.

Dou­ble bass player Chloe Wil­liamson, who hails from Roma, was part of the Queens­land Sym­phony Or­ches­tra en­sem­ble for the CMR Ini­tia­tive again in 2019.

“Not only do I love the op­por­tu­nity to catch up with friends and family whilst per­form­ing in my home­town, I feel so blessed that I am able to join Queens­land Sym­phony Or­ches­tra in work­ing so closely with stu­dents and com­mu­nity mu­si­cians as part of the amaz­ing CMR Ini­tia­tive,” she said.
