St George's College is proud to support young and emerging artists in Western Australia.
Established in 2016, the Young and Emerging Artists Initiative was founded to provide gifted musicians access to opportunities for the development of higher level chamber music skills, prior to and beyond university.
All ensembles rehearse at least once per week within the College and receive mentoring from Emeritus Professor Paul Wright and visiting artists. The ensembles also perform in the College’s concert series and throughout Perth.
The program has three 3 groups: two post-tertiary ensembles, including a chamber orchestra and an early music ensemble, and a string quartet for highly gifted secondary school students.
