Music is a big part of what we do at The Imperial, and we've been given a great chance to help nurture the next generation of musos through our sponsoring of Eumundi School of Rock, enabling the establishment of a new band – The Eumundi School of Rock Imperial Super Band!
Eumundi School of Rock (ESOR) founder (also a five-time ARIA award-winning artist and awesome local mum) Katie Noonan, says the Imperial Super Band will be a five piece band for musicians aged 13 – 17 years. "The Imperial Super Band will be open to audition for kids aged 13-17 and will include three free one-on-one lessons with our ESOR professional teachers, plus 10 weeks professional mentoring with ARIA award-winning and National Jazz Award-winning local musician/composer Zac Hurren and awesome professional gig opportunities!,” she says. “We will still be continuing our 20 free scholarships for kids in Years 3 to 8, but this initiative gives us an exciting new opportunity to showcase our extra talented older kids!” The sponsorship covers tuition and teaching for the kids, a lesson/rehearsal space (In The Bunker) and provision of back line (instruments)
Auditions for the ESOR Imperial Super Band will take place on 16 and 18 March - details at www.eumundischoolofrock.com.au- followed by three weeks of individual lessons, then 10 weeks full band lessons.
The band will then perform at The Hinterland Craft Beer Festival on Saturday 27 June + at OFFBEAT Music Festival on Saturday 7 Nov.
