Est. in 2008, JNQP has enriched the lives of many talented young musicians across the state of Victoria. Following consultation with local communities throughout regional Victoria, High School students are invited to form string quartets. Monthly mentor sessions with professional musicians are delivered live or via Skype. Performance opportunities are enabled at Community & Civic events allowing their quartet to grow in confidence & maturity . In 2018 JNQP will expand further into Central & Western Vic.
JNQP Is seeking funding for the next 3 years of growth. Launching interstate in 2019, & into Asia by 2020. Collaborating with their international peers, exciting opportunities exist for students who would otherwise have limited if no access to music study. After 2 years, a 2nd generation quartet is launched in each region allowing the foundation members to take on the role as mentors to their younger peers.
JNQP is ground-breaking and unique. No such program exists that offers ongoing professional mentorship, performance opportunities, collaboration & a professional pathway to these gifted string students. Members of JNQP have been enabled & inspired to study music at a tertiary level, and a number are now teaching/performing professionally – passing on their inspirational journey to a new generation of musicians. Once a year, ALL quartets come together to perform as a String Orchestra. The excitement, energy & enthusiasm is breathtaking as you witness them perform.
JNQP is seeking an additional $20,000. This will allow for a total of 10 quartets in Victoria by the end of 2018, expanding into NSW & Tas in 2019, and launching into Asia by 2020. JNQP has enriched the lives of many talented young musicians across the state of Victoria. It has steadily grown, and is poised for unparalleled expansion. By donating, you will help create a legacy.
All monies raised will go towards opportunities for the students. Professional mentors are recruited, venues booked, sheet music sourced & instruments are acquired. We have a number of supporters who already are offering their services free of charge/or at cost. These include; Fine Music, Atelier Paul Davies, & Ivanhoe Picture Framing. Not only do our gifted students experience the joy of chamber music, but they come in contact with professional musicians & like-minded peers.
The energy & enthusiasm they take back to their classrooms, ensembles, families & communities is over-whelming, and has made a real difference to their lives. JNQP is changing the lives of string players throughout regional Victoria. With your help we will enable greater reach bringing this innovative program to more students.
