2015 Conference – Music: Educating for Life
The 2015 conference Music: Educating for Life was a stunning success, finishing with an inspiring final plenary address by Dr Anita Collins, which followed the afternoon Young Composers Concert. The concert was the culmination of the Young Composers Project where Dr Anne Cawrse, the invited Composer in Residence, combined with the wonderful talents of the Australian String Quartet. Anne’s commissioned work Skittled and student compositions from NSW, QLD, SA, WA, Victoria and Tasmania were premiered by the Australian String Quartet in an exquisite performance. It was fitting conclusion to a fantastic XXth Conference at Prince Alfred College in Adelaide.
The leadership of Dr Jenny Rosevear and the SA Chapter are to be applauded for a wonderful event. It was a great three days with over 120 papers and presentations combined with many fine concerts and performances. Close to 300 delegates enjoyed a wide array of professional learning opportunities and some great opportunities to network with music educators from all around Australia and the world.
We look forward to celebrating the 50th Anniversary of ASME at the next conference in 2017. Here are few photos from the conference, more will follow in the coming days and weeks.
