Have you ever wanted to be part of an ensemble? Here’s your chance! 52 Strings provides an opportunity to participate in a workshop and subsequent performance with Camerata at the Empire Theatre’s Armitage Centre: Heritage Bank Auditorium.
Teachers, students and members of the community interested in participating in the ensemble should be AMEB Grade 6 or above with the ability to learn and perform Vaughan-Williams Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis.
This project is proudly supported by the Empire Theatres Foundation and the St Baker Energy Innovation Fund.
The project is also supported by SWQ Regional Arts to enable students from the wider South West Queensland Region to access this opportunity. If you, or know someone who would love to participate, lives outside of the Toowoomba Regional Council Area you may be eligible for travel and accommodation support to attend rehearsals and the performance.

Teachers/registrants please note:
- Students (under 18) must be nominated/registered by their teacher.
- When registering for the April workshop, it is essential that you/your students are available for the rehearsals and performance.
- Following the workshop, selected local players will be invited to play in a rare live performance of Penderecki’s 1960 Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima. This evocative work brings to life the terrifying sounds of war. The full orchestra will also tackle one of the most glorious and well-loved works of the string orchestra, Vaughan-Williams’s Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis.
