Foundation Studies music student, Venus Lai, is currently playing in the Elder Conservatorium Orchestra. Their first concert was held on Saturday night April 23 at Elder Hall and featured a Beethoven and Brahms programme. The Conservatorium provided free tickets for approximately twenty College students and staff to enjoy the concert in the historic Elder Hall, within the University of Adelaide.
Venus is from Hong Kong SAR and is being taught her FSP music subjects by Mr David Garwood and Mr Geoff Rogers. She is also being tutored by Mr Martin Butler from the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. The University of Adelaide College is offering a music stream within Foundation Studies for the second consecutive year and had great success with its first intake in 2015, with all students being accepted into the University of Adelaide music degree.
