The Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra is delighted to present the Young Mannheim Symphonists National ONLINE Spring Academy, directed by Rachael Beesley and Nicole van Bruggen.

Students are welcome to register for the two-day program featuring guest speakers Anthea Cottee and Dr Neal Peres da Costa, masterclasses by Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra’s Principal Musicians plus Q&A mentoring sessions.

“I have been enlightened by what was brought to me and I will use this knowledge from my very next practice session!”

“The information on historical style and interpretation provided practical techniques that can be implemented in future playing. Very eye opening – the information helps me approach pieces from a new angle and understand the composer’s intentions better.” – 2020 Young Mannheim Symphonists National ONLINE Winter Academy participants
