Yarra Music

Life is something like a trumpet. If you don’t put anything in, you won’t get anything out. – William Christopher Handy

Yarra Music is the parent support group for the Music Department at Yarra Valley Grammar. We take a team approach to supporting the Music Department staff and students to ensure the best experience for everyone involved.

We meet in the evenings once each term, both in person at the school and also online during the winter months.

We aim to support the activities of the department by raising funds through music-related events throughout the year, whilst also supporting in-School events such as combined workshops with other schools and bringing guest artists to the School such as the renowned vocal group Idea of North and in 2014, Mr James Morrison and his band.

Our signature events each year include Food, Wine and Music, Jazz in the Café and our Yarra Music Awards Night.

From the Director of Performing Arts:

Join the dynamic and supportive community if Yarra Music. This exceptional group plays a crucial role in enhancing and promoting music at Yarra Valley Grammar through fostering community connections.

You will have the opportunity to work together on various music initiatives at the school in a fun and supportive environment.

I eagerly anticipate your participation at a future meeting or event.
