Kendall String Project from March 8-10

The Kendall School of Arts has filled with the sounds of string enthusiasts and gifted young musicians from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. 

The Kendall String Project was on from March 8 until March 10 and included workshops and rehearsals which culminated in a performance by the large string ensemble.

The passionate instrumentalists were guided by Goetz Richter, who is a leading string teacher from the Sydney Conservatorium and artistic director of the Kendall National Violin Competition.

Participants included both beginner and advanced players. 

"All enjoyed the lively and intense way in which the technical and musical skills were presented," a spokesperson from the project said. 

The concert featured several items played by the visiting musicians.

The string project is part of an ongoing direction of the Kendall National Violin Competition to develop string playing in the area.

The project ended on Monday morning with a workshop for students at St Columba Anglican School in Port Macquarie.

The string project weekend was made possible by a generous donation from the Kendall Op Shop.
