Surrounded by Hawkesbury sandstone cliffs the tiny village of St Albans nestles alongside the Macdonald River. The area is rich in colonial history, with many historic buildings including the Settlers Arms Inn (1836) and Price Morris Cottage, historic cemeteries, little stone churches, and much more.

Music is a vital part of living and learning. If you come to this workshop you will find musicians of varying standards who enjoy making music a daily part of their life and who love to learn. In particular we love to play music in ensembles so that we can learn from, and support each other building enduring friendships. This workshop is especially designed for learners of all standards and in particularly the late starters.
Proceeds from the St ALBANS STRINGS weekend workshop will help support music education in the local MacDonald primary school.
