Southern Cross University will showcase some of their best music performers when third-year music students present their final year exams to the public from October 29 to November 1.

The exams will demonstrate the diverse musical skills and talents of 23 final-year Bachelor of Contemporary Music students. The performances will cover a range of styles from New Orleans blues and funk, to jazz and alternative rock and include drums, guitar, vocal, bass and keyboard.

Dr Annie Mitchell, course co-ordinator for the Bachelor of Contemporary Music, said the third-year performances were a wonderful opportunity to highlight the enormous variety of talent within the music program.

“Our course has a well-established reputation for producing some of Australia’s leading musicians and musical directors. This is a great opportunity to hear some of the country’s up and coming musicians,” Dr Mitchell said.
