The Sydney Eisteddfod has announced a new International Residency Program and introduces the  inaugural 2024 Sydney Eisteddfod String Quartet which will participate in this exceptional opportunity.

They are violinists David Carreon and Monty Guo with violist Justin Chen and cellist Noah Oshiro, four talented young Australian musicians, who have all performed in Sydney Eisteddfod events. They will have the career-enhancing and life-changing chance to travel to Italy in June to attend Orvieto Musica, followed by a world premiere of a piece by Daniel Rojas at the Sydney Opera House in July when they return.

The 2024 Sydney Eisteddfod String Quartet will represent Sydney Eisteddfod at Orvieto Musica in Italy from June and July. This International Residency Program is an intensive three-week performance workshop, delivered by a world-class faculty, to refine technical skills, deepen artistry and work on performance ability.

The 2024 Sydney Eisteddfod String Quartet will hone their skills playing together in the Intensive Strings Chamber Music Workshop, a performance-based program offering the opportunity to work closely with Director Robyn Julyan and Guest Artist Alessandro Cervo in a rigorous schedule of daily rehearsals preparing for five public concerts over the 21-day festival. While refining their skills as musicians, participants also enjoy life in one of Umbria’s beautiful hill towns. Orvieto, 60 miles north of Rome, is a medieval walled city dating from the twelfth century, so history, food and Italian culture will all be part of this unique experience.

On their return from Italy, the 2024 Sydney Eisteddfod String Quartet will be in final rehearsals to perform a newly-commissioned work by Daniel Rojas at the Sydney Eisteddfod Ballet Scholarship at Sydney Opera House on Sunday 21 July, 2024. Dancers from Australian Youth Ballet will also be part of this not-to-be-missed performance.

Performance: Sunday July 21, Sydney Eisteddfod Ballet Scholarship, with Australian Youth Ballet, Sydney Opera House Concert Hall. Tickets on sale here.
