Over the last few years, the MITCH Next Generation concerts have presented an entire program of the best young musicians in the Central Highlands. The concerts have been a wonderful way for young people to see their contemporaries and for MITCH to create programs that are diverse and inspiring.
Following the very successful 2015 ‘Next Generation Concert’, MITCH is proud to present the 2016 concert – once again in the glorious, nineteenth century main hall at Braemar College on Sunday17 April at 2.30 pm.
For the first time, the 2016 performers are drawn from all the Macedon Ranges secondary schools such as, Braemar College, Gisborne Secondary College, Sacred Heart College and Kyneton Secondary College, as well as the Resonance String Orchestra. Already confirmed for the concert is the impressive Year 11 pianist Jing Zhang. She is preparing for Grade 7 piano under the tutelage of Bron Sozanski.
MITCH Music Director, Henry Vyhnal said of this year’s program:
“Sometimes in the past it has been a challenge put together a program that is consistent in standard and representative of a range of styles. This year, I have been inundated with requests from Macedon Ranges music teachers to present their very best students. I have had enough requests to present two concerts. Those who miss out now will be considered for the remainder of the 2016 season.
The sheer number and quality of the young musicians being considered is proof of the fine efforts of our music teachers as well as the attraction that the MITCH concerts have for students who wish to enjoy a superlative, performing experience.”
