e Griffith Takes Creative Arts To The Outback


credit: sheknows

An Australian university put on an "epic evening of music, dance, art, and film" in an effort to inspire the next generation of musicians, the Brisbane Times reports.

Griffith University's Luminescent Longreach concert featured musicians from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music alongside members of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra.

The evening also included animations and short films by students and alumni from Griffith Film School and Queensland College of Art. "The exhilaration of being on stage with 20 or 30 people all locking in and playing the same thing is a powerful experience," Peter Hegedus, Griffith University's deputy director associate professor, tells the Times.

The university also ran a series of school workshops for students from around the region. "We worked with so many students who are passionate about creating music and art but haven't had the opportunity to see professional performers and artists in action," Hegedus says. "I hope we were able to inspire them."
