ABOUT ANAM ARTISTS
The Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) has for over 20 years nurtured the skills and shaped the musical imaginations of the country’s most outstanding young musicians. Many of the instrumentalists who have spent time at ANAM’s home in the South Melbourne Town Hall have been the recipients of major national and international prizes and awards, and now occupy leading positions in ensembles and orchestras in Australia and abroad.
In 2017 ANAM introduces a new initiative that celebrates the careers of some of these outstanding musicians. Each year the new ANAM Artists Program will collect together a handful of our most illustrious alumni from around the world, and bring them home to Australia for recitals and performances around the country.
Alex Raineri, winner of the Australian National Piano Award, is one of the country’s most sought-after young pianists. Clarinetist Lloyd van’t Hoff, founding member of the Arcadia Quintet, won the 2015 Symphony Australia Young Performer of the Year Award. And completing the trio is cellist Jack Bailey, who has been studying at the Royal Northern College of Music in the UK and returns to Australia for this special ANAM Artists tour.
This performance is enabled through the generosity of the Yarranabbe Foundation.
