Accelerando in Concert

Accelerando 2019.jpg


As part of the Accelerando program, 9 young, gifted and talented students from Victorian Government secondary schools received mentorship and behind-the-scenes access to encourage and inspire their performance skills and musical development.

Throughout the year students met with local and international artists, attended a range of concerts at the Centre and participated in specialist lessons and master classes. An innovative series of workshops introduced students to entrepreneurial skills in communication and marketing. This concert is a celebration of their learning and development as part of Accelerando.

Supported by The Peggy & Leslie Cranbourne Foundation.
