Utzon Music Education 2023 String Quartet Masterclass
With Quatuor Van Kuijk

7 May 2023

In the Utzon Room | Classical Music

Be a fly on the wall as Quatuor Van Kuijk works with members of the Sydney Youth Orchestra in a special string quartet masterclass.

From one generation to the next: a string quartet masterclass

They’re only 11 years old – young in string quartet terms – but Quatuor Van Kuijk has already collected a wealth of accolades, from prizes in the Trondheim International Chamber Music and Wigmore Hall International String Quartet competitions, to seasons as BBC New Generation Artists and ECHO Rising Stars, and a prestigious residency at ProQuartet Paris .

Meanwhile, the back of the tour T-shirt would list London, Paris, Vienna, Zurich, Amsterdam, Berlin, Stockholm, Lisbon, Edinburgh… Sydney! And when they travel they not only give concerts, they pay it forward, sharing their experience and musical vision with young musicians of the next generation.

Join us in the Utzon Room for this special masterclass and witness the energy, insight and sharing of knowledge as Quatuor Van Kuijk works with a string quartet drawn from the Sydney Youth Orchestra.
