Description

ABMUSIC is an Aboriginal Corporation formed in 1986 to support and nurture Aboriginal musicians in Western Australia.

From small beginnings, the Corporation has grown and developed to the point where now, ABMUSIC is a Registered Training Organisation delivering Certificates II through IV from the Music Industry Training Package in a program especially tailored for Australian indigenous people.

Whether you are a beginner in music, can already play or you would like to work in the music business in a support role (e.g. a "roadie", a sound engineer or even a booking agent), ABMUSIC can provide you with the skills and knowledge necessary to prepare you for entry into the competitive world of the Australian Music Industry.

With such facilities as fully equipped percussion and rehearsal studios, practice rooms, a MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) studio, and a "Pro-Tools" recording studio, ABMUSIC uses the latest in technology to develop students' understanding of production and engineering in the contemporary music industry. Students that progress through the three years of study of the Music Industry Training Package and complete the Certificate IV in Music at ABMUSIC are 'job ready' upon graduation.

Services for ABMUSIC students are designed especially for the indigenous community and include;

The "Food for Thought" program wherein students are provided with breakfast on arrival in the morning.
Bus transport from Oats Street Station to and from the College in the morning and after classes.
A Student Support Officer.

Monthly performance opportunities during term time where students are able to practice their skills in performances for their peers and friends and family.

Details

  • Arts:Music,Performing Arts,Jazz

Description

Since 2003 the Perth based Kaleidoscope Ensemble has been performing and running workshop projects for young people. The ensemble’s aim is to enrich the lives of young Australians, presenting performances of the highest quality, which not only entertain, but inspire children to sing, or want to learn musical instruments, act and perform themselves, to read, think about their environment, and to be creative.

Gillian Catlow, the artistic director and founder of the ensemble, grew up in Sydney. She was a founding member of the Australian Chamber Orchestra, before moving to Europe where she studied and worked as a freelance violinist in Austria and Germany for 20 years. In 1997 Gillian settled in Perth and established herself as a teacher and performer.

Originally a string quartet and actor, Kaleidoscope, as the name suggests, has undergone many changes, as new ideas develop and various performers pursue exciting adventures in other parts of the world. What has remained constant is Kaleidoscope's passion and enthusiasm for discovering new stories and thinking up different ways to share them with you. 

But don't be fooled into thinking Kaleidoscope's performances are strictly for children - the Ensemble's latest production HERMAN AND ROSIE is a musical feast of great tunes from the 40s and 50s played by a fabulous six piece jazz combo featuring the wonderful Libby Hammer. Australian author/illustrator Gus Gordon's acclaimed tale is brought to life in an unforgettable way, which will delight listeners of all ages.

  • Local Clubs:Arts,Music
  • Type:Club,Volunteer,Association,Local Focus

Details

  • Arts:Local Clubs,Music,Performing Arts
  • Established:1982

Description

The Melville Theatre Company was the brainchild of the late David J. Burton who, in 1982, called a meeting for interested people in the community to form a theatre company in the Melville area.

As a result of this meeting the Melville Theatre Company was born. The newly formed company’s first production was the farce, Not Now Darling. With its second production, The Sound of Music, the young company won the Finley Award for the Best Production of the Year in Community Theatre. Since then, actors and directors have consistently featured in the list of awards at the annual State Drama Festival. In recent times, Melville has taken home three more  Finley awards for Best Play; one for our 2010 production of The Return, in 2013 for Rabbit Hole and the 2014 production of Twelve Angry Men.

Initially our seasons were performed in the Melville Civic Centre, but since 1987, our venue has been the Roy Edinger Centre, on the corner of Stock Road and Canning Highway, Palmyra. For many years we shared this venue with a multitude of other users, which created difficulties for all parties, however, in 1998 we were granted sole management by the City of Melville and have thus been able to create a real theatre within the centre, including raked seating, carpeting and a new lighting and sound system.

Perth Symphony or PSO as we’re known believes that music is made to be shared and experienced, that’s why you’ll find us playing in unique and unexpected places performing music from every genre imaginable. From Metallica to Mozart, Britney to Bach, Ellington to Elgar, and more!

We love the opportunity to bring orchestral music to people who wouldn’t ordinarily hear it, and in ways they couldn’t possibly imagine. We collaborate with other art forms and artists, such as painters, DJs, contemporary dancers and actors. PSO brings music to life in a way that you don’t just hear it, you can see it and feel it too!

We believe that our music has the ability to move and inspire people from all cultures and walks of life. Perth Symphony challenges traditions and creates powerful, compelling performances that are often unexpected and always truly memorable.
