Music Precinct Campaign

 

Music Precinct Campaign

The project will include the redevelopment of Firbank House into a state of the art Music Precinct and enable us to provide inspiring teaching and learning environments for the performing arts, enhance our music curriculum and signature programs, and give students the opportunity to broaden their horizons. The Precinct will incorporate dedicated Recital and Rehearsal spaces designed to accommodate a variety of musical performances from full orchestra settings to string quartet or solo performances, and school community functions.  In collaboration with specialist acoustic consultants, it will meet the exacting and variable acoustic standards required for Firbank’s broad variety of musical ensembles.

The Music Precinct will provide for a new generation of Firbank musicians. 

We seek the support of the Firbank community to help raise $2 million towards the cost of this $6 million project. All donations which are tax deductible, will help us meet our target and ensure the success of this project. There are significant opportunities for naming rights of spaces within the Precinct, and two practice rooms have already been allocated to honour the long standing commitment to Music at Firbank of music staff Jerome Walles and Old Grammarian and Music Teacher, Gay Hosie.
