Lucas Parklands has always had a strong commitment to supporting the development and promotion of talented young musicians.
We are excited at the prospect of hosting the first Young Musicians Festival in Montville Queensland. We’ve invited artists from Australasia that are currently studying music at tertiary level to participate.
The Festival provides a unique opportunity for outstanding students and emerging professional musicians to gain performance experience in a celebration of music over a weekend with solo, duet and ensemble concerts. The concerts are designed to support the most talented music students at a critical stage between final training and a professional career. The Festival helps them make contact with peers, music professionals and broaden their opportunities.
The Festival weekend will comprise of our welcome concert “Inspirations” on Friday 27th June 7 pm followed by three concerts on Saturday and two on Sunday.
The performance repertoire includes: Movements from the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto, Chopin Piano Concerto No 1, Sonatas by Beethoven, Cesar Frank, Chopin, Schumann and works by Ginastera, Tchaikovsky, Liszt, Brahms and Ravel. Ensembles by Ravel, Brahms and Dvorak.
