Our Talented Musicians See External Success In National & State Programs!

Today we’d like to offer our congratulations to a group of our talented musicians who call Varsity College home! Recently, students from across both of our campuses have been successful in gaining places in both National and State Ensemble Programs  designed to help extend and encourage their pursuit of musical excellence.

Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University’s State Honours Ensemble Program has grown from relatively modest beginnings in 2001. SHEP  is now a firmly established aspect of music learning in Queensland, bringing together young people from all over the State, in regional centres and Brisbane to share their passion for making music.
