ACTcent returns to Llewellyn Hall on Wednesday 4 December at 7pm Presented by the ANU School of Music in partnership with ACTMEN, the ACT Music Educators Network, ACTcent is an annual event that celebrates and showcases the musical achievements of the Territory’s Year 12 music students.
The breadth and depth of musical interests of Canberra’s youth is astonishing; something that this year will be powerfully apparent to audiences from the opening act, a performance of a prelude from one of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Cello Suites on electric guitar (the soloist is Radford College’s Ethan McAlister).
“ACTcent gives students from across the ACT the opportunity to be inspired by each other, to be celebrated by their family and friends, and also perform on the stage of Llewellyn Hall where they can experience the thrill and excitement of making music in a world-class auditorium” said Professor Peter Tregear, Head of the ANU School of Music.
President of ACTMEN, Joel Copeland, said “This is a great opportunity to showcase the wealth of talent amongst the pre-tertiary music students in Canberra.”
Wednesday 4 December at 7pm
