The summer school will commence at 9:10am Saturday 10th of January.

In addition to the Ensemble sessions, workshops and master classes, which are covered by the daily Observer fee of $30, there are performances as follows, some of which attract charges for non-participants.

On Wednesday January 14 at 5.30pm the Finale Concert of Ensemble performances will be held in the Packer Theatre at Ascham. This concert is free.


With these scholarships the Society makes provision for promising and enthusiastic guitar students from regional or rural areas of Australia. Aimed primarily at pre-tertiary level guitarists and 1st year tertiary students, they cover the Summer School enrolment fee and the cost of billeting with a member of the Society from the evening of Friday 09/1/15 to the morning of Thursday 15/1/2015. Only applicants over 18 years of age can be billeted due to NSW Child Protection Laws. The applicant should meet any travel costs to and from the Summer School.

These scholarships are made possible by the generosity of Alhambra Guitars.
