A designated CSF accompanist will be available at no cost on the day to the non Concerto section entrants.  Entrants are free to use their own accompanist in place of the CSF accompanist, at their own cost.

Emily Leong will be available to accompany Festival students who are playing on Saturday 2nd June. Emily will do mostly 15 minute rehearsals in the two weeks leading up to the festival – half hour rehearsals for older ones only if needed. Email (preferred) Emilyleong.music@gmail.com or mobile 0402 515 338.

Bronwyn Brown will be available to accompany Festival students who are playing on Sunday 3rd June. She will only be available for rehearsals in the week before the Festival, from 27th May. Bookings for her accompanying services are essential and should be made either by EMAIL to bbrown@grapevine.com.au or by TEXT on 0408 246 818 (calls to this number will not be answered as Mrs Brown will be overseas).

Entrants must provide their own accompanist for the two Competitive Concerto sections 501 and 502, at their own cost.

This year we have secured for the competitive sections the services of an eminent violinist from Orange and experienced strings adjudicator, Doreen Cumming.  Doreen is the principal 2nd violin in the Canberra Symphony Orchestra.

The smooth running of the festival depends on the efforts of a small number of AUSTA ACT volunteers.  If you are able to assist in any way, please contact canberrastringfest@gmail.com
