Students picked to form string quartet

FOUR Bendigo students will work with Orchestra Victoria and Opera Australia conductor John Noble over the next year.

Bendigo Senior Secondary College’s Patrick Barton-Grace, Victory Christian College’s Aisha Quattrochi and Bendigo South East College’s Max Harris and Tarli Goss began the John Noble Quartet Program on Monday.

Noble established the string quartet program in 2008.

The program offers aspiring musicians one-on-one sessions and professional mentorship as they undertake the string quartet training program.

The new quartet will have its first performance on July 20 when they perform ahead of Orchestra Victoria’s education mOVe concert.
