We are pleased to announce the achievements of our ANU Community Music Centre students in the Musica Viva "Strike a Chord" competition. Notably, coached by ANU Cello teacher Rachel Johnston, the Kingsland Cello Trio won a Junior Prize in the competition.

Musica Viva’s "Strike a Chord" competition is a national chamber music event for secondary school students, designed to foster chamber music skills and provide performance opportunities. The success of our students reflects their talent and the quality of instruction at the ANU Community Music Centre.

Congratulations to the Kingsland Cello Trio and all our Community Music Centre students who participated. Their achievements underscore the vibrant musical community at ANU, and we look forward to their future accomplishments.
