Minister for the Arts, George Souris, said NSW’s network of regional conservatoriums play an important role in encouraging musicians of all ages throughout the State to experience, learn and perform music.

"NSW Regional Conservatorium Project funding is for one-off or time-limited music projects that are additional to a conservatorium's core program and that support the role of conservatoriums as key arts organisations in regional NSW.

"The objective of Regional Conservatorium funding is to enhance regional diversity, excellence and innovation in music.

"It does this by increasing professional music performance and arts development in regional and rural areas and increasing access to high quality music experiences for staff and students at local conservatoriums such as the NRCAC.

"An important aspect of this program is to help build partnerships between regional conservatoriums and arts organisations that can enhance music opportunities and experiences in regional NSW," Mr George said.
