Creative Campers 4/01/2006
This coming Sunday afternoon (8 January), 34 young musicians will join eleven professionals from the music industry for a seven-day residential music camp at Doonan's House with No Steps.
The program will be an extension of the Creative Careers music mentoring series organised by Creative Noosa during 2005. The camp concept has been developed in consultation with year 2005 participants and mentors and offers an intensive schedule of workshops, jamming sessions and music industry lectures.
Vanessa Doolan from Creative Noosa said today the daily schedule would run from 9.15 am to 4.30 pm, culminating in jam sessions and performance craft workshops each evening. "The House with no Steps is an ideal location, boasting lots of bushland space and no neighbours to be bothered about decibels," she commented.
"Once again, we have been overwhelmed by the enthusiastic response from young musicians and the generosity and commitment from mentors. This is a fantastic opportunity for emerging musicians - not just to have access to professional mentors for a whole week, but to meet each other, perform with new people and try new things.
"An outdoor concert will be held on the final evening, Sunday 15 January from 5.30 pm. To our delight we have been able to engage one of the international artists who performed at the Woodford Festival. This represents a remarkable opportunity for young musicians to share the bill with a highly accomplished artist - and of course, will be a real bonus for their audience."
Some of the new work created over the previous week will be premiered at the concert. Tickets will be available at the gate at the House with no Steps in Charles Duke Memorial Drive, off Fellowship Drive, Doonan. For further details, please contact Vanessa Doolan on 0438 792 570.
