New festival for musicians and composers

Headline performers Ensemble Offspring

A newly formed, not for profit, community group of musicians and music lovers called Composing Noosa and headed by local music teacher and

renowned composer, Rob Melbourne have organised a three day music festival in March featuring local and international composers and performers.

There will be concerts, seminars and masterclasses and the opportunity to socialise with performers and composers.

Headlining the performances will be Ensemble Offspring from Sydney, Viney Grinberg Duo from Brisbane, pianist Roman from the Ukraine and the Sunshine Coasts’s Pacific Chamber Players who will be joined by guest pianist Saxon Mills-Booth.

Internationally renowned composers include Ofer- Ben Amots from Colorado, Jan Jirasek from Prague, Paul Smith from Sydney and Rob Melbourne from Noosaville.

A seminar titled Creating a Noosa Sound promises to inspire interesting discussion and festival musicians will be sharing their performance secrets in masterclasses.

During the festival there will be an informal Gala Night and a series of casual parties where musicians will welcome questions and

conversation.

Composing Noosa will be held from 8-10 March at Noosa Arts Theatre, Weyba Road, Noosaville.
