PARTNERSHIP WITH JOHN NOBLE'S QUARTET PROGRAM
We recently signed the official documents that confirm Flinders Quartet’s role as Artistic Patrons of John Noble’s Quartet Program. JNQP started ten years ago with the aim of bringing an ongoing professional mentorship program to student groups in regional Victoria. It has since grown to encompass six centres and has reached over 120 students from 43 individual schools. It’s immensely exciting to be partnering with a program that delivers real depth and longevity to its engagement.
Our role as Artistic Patrons will have us travelling around Victoria giving masterclasses, workshops, professional advice and combined performances over the course of the year to the talented JNQP student string quartets. The program will culminate in an inspiring performance at the Melbourne Recital Centre on November 4 with all quartets performing as a string orchestra alongside their professional mentors.
Special thanks to the Robert Salzer Foundation for supporting our involvement in this wonderful program.
