Welcome to 2023 at the Coffs Con!

2023 has begun at the Con with a new and exciting energy following a well deserved break over the holiday period.

Lessons are underway once more, with new staff finding their groove and returning students settling into the new year.

We have the first of three Sunday Series Concerts on March 5, at the special time of 1pm. Featuring the brilliant Ensemble Liaison from Melbourne, the concert is set to launch the 2023 performance calendar in spectacular fashion. Programmed to engage and thrill audiences, Concert 1 includes Brahms, Gershwin and more. Tickets can be purchased online on the Con’s events page.

The A/C Replacement Project is set to begin thanks to partial funding from the NSW State Government. Initial planning and preparation has taken place and local businesses are actively engaged to deliver a successful and cost-efficient project. The Conservatorium is launching a fundraising campaign to raise the shortfall in budget, with a target figure of $35,000.
If you are interested in donating or sponsoring this campaign, please email our Executive Director on pbrearley@coffscon.org.au to discuss any ideas and opportunities.

The Con is excited for another year of music education and performance, and looks to further engage the greater Coffs Coast community in the thrilling annual program, right here at the home of music on the Coast!
