NMIT students create world of music

21 May 2012

Students from NMIT's (Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE) Fairfield campus are producing a free world music concert as part of their Bachelor of Music degree.

Students and teachers will take listeners on a musical journey around the world with NMIT Balinese Gamelan music teacher, Jeremy Dullard, performing with his group Gamelan Slonding, as well as ensembles performing music from India, Brazil and the Balkans.

Jonathan Dimond, Head of Program for the Bachelor of Music degree, says "Our program recognises the rich diversity of music from around the world, and this end of semester concert is a great way of celebrating this diversity as well as the students' remarkable achievements. It's a free event and the community is invited to come along to hear some fantastic music.”

The concert follows the recent successes of the students' East African and Japanese Earthquake benefit concerts which raised $4000, thanks to the support of the attending audiences.

When: Friday 1 June 7:30 - 10:00pm
Where: Yarra Edge Music Centre, Building G, NMIT Fairfield Campus (Melway 44H1).
Cost: Free
