Yarra Music's Food Wine and Music 

The wines that were featured at the event are available for purchase – with every order making a contribution towards big instrument purchases for use by the music students.  Please click HERE to look at the order form and HERE to view the tasting notes. Bottles are priced per half dozen, and can be made up of any six bottles from the same winery. The deadline for wine orders has been extended to allow everyone to have enough time to order – please return completed forms to the music department by Friday 7 June. Completed order forms can be returned to Mrs Sam Moon in the Music Department (samantha.moon@yvg.vic.edu.au) or to Yarra Music (music@yvg.vic.edu.au). Orders will be available for collection after the 20th June. 

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 evening at the School approximately eight times a year, and are very fortunate to have Mr. Scott Templeton, Director of Music, attending these meetings to provide us with an update of what is happening in the Music Department.

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 Music:

I hope you consider being involved in Yarra Music.  This is a fantastic group of people whose energy and enthusiasm do so much to support music at Yarra Valley Grammar.  Importantly, they also have a great time doing it!

Yarra Music is a fantastic way to get involved in the Yarra community, to meet great people and to have fun contributing to the musical life of the School.  

I look forward to seeing you at a meeting or event.

Scott Templeton
Director of Music
