Join fellow musicians from around New Zealand and overseas for six days of stimulating and enjoyable musicmaking in Wellington, New Zealand’s cultural capital.
The 2017 ASQ International Music Academy will take place at St Andrew’s on the Terrace in Wellington and will begin on Tuesday 1 August at 9:30am. Each day, participants will be busy with chamber music coaching and rehearsals taken by members of the Aroha String Quartet. Guest tutors will direct ensembles and masterclasses.
The ASQ International Music Academy will culminate in a participants’ concert in the wonderful acoustic of St Andrew’s on The Terrace on the afternoon of Sunday 6 August.
The timetable includes time to practise, to relax and socialise with other participants and to enjoy the scenic and cultural attractions of Wellington. In the evenings, there will be time for informal concerts and workshops as well as other social events.
The ASQ International Music Academy is ideally suited to musicians with a minimum standard of Grade VI.
In 2017, the focus of the Academy is again on strings and piano. Pre-formed chamber ensembles are welcome to apply. Participants not in an existing group will be organised into ensembles for coaching. Music will be sent out in advance.
Applicants who are unable to attend the whole course from 1–6 August may apply for the short course from 4–6 August, beginning at 9:30am on Friday 4 August.
To register for the 2017 Academy applicants must complete an application form available on our website here, and pay a deposit (refundable on non-acceptance). The deadline for applications is Sunday 30 April.
