PERFORMANCES @ Melbourne Digital Concert Hall

Were you able to hear our Head of Strings - Elizabeth Sellars - perform on the Melbourne Digital Concert Hall (MDCH) last week? If you did, you would have heard an amazing performance with the Sutherland Trio! There's another MDCH event coming up this Friday 24th July at 8.30pm - our Director Kenji will be joining forces with the fabulous Melbourne Symphony Orchestra cellist Miranda Brockman. They will be performing music by Bach, Shostakovich, and the brand-new, world-premiere performance of Rock Pillar from the Old Fernery by Australian composer Kym Dillon. Click on the link to buy a ticket and enjoy a night in on the couch this Friday! The picture is the inspiration for the new work.


The members of our Ensemble-In-Residence - Trio Anima Mundi - are back at their individual homes following the latest lockdown for Melbourne, Australia. However, this hasn't stopped them from performing together. They're back with their TAM COVID-19's an early sneak peak (one day early!) from this week's #TAMTuesdays release - a movement from Alec Rowley's Short Trio on English Tunes. Trio Anima Mundi back with a new COVID-19 Sessions entry

Please feel free to contact our team at if you have any questions. As always, the team at International Academy of Musical Arts will be very happy to assist you! Stay safe everyone!

Study with the masters, make life-long friends, and become the stars of tomorrow.
