There is something extraordinary about ANAM.
Walking in, you are immediately struck by the energy of the place – a buzz, a stir, something special.
This year, we are also welcome a host of some of the best international artists, including returning favourites Anthony Marwood (violin) and Brodsky Quartet, as well as Paavali Jumppanen (piano), who will direct three concerts in May. Peter Hill (piano), Johannes Moser (cello), Michael Collins (clarinet) and Jereon Berwaerts (trumpet) will also join the ANAM family leading our musicians in projects that will challenge, inspire and engage them in music-making of the highest calibre.
ANAM bursts out of the blocks with conductor James Judd leading the ANAM Orchestra in our Opening Performance featuring music by three of our 2013 featured composers: Britten, Shostakovich and Lutoslawski.
ANAM is thrilled to be partnering with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, Australian Chamber Orchestra and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra as well as taking part in both the Castlemaine and Perth Festivals . These opportunities will provide a tasting plate of future possibilities as we prepare our students for the life of a professional musician.
From a fleeting moment of magic to a life defining experience, I encourage you to join us at ANAM for a year of incredible music-making
