Congratulations to everyone who auditioned for Lyric. We were thrilled to see and hear from so many local teenagers. After much decision we have chosen a group of 15 lucky students to form the group, Lyric. We are also very excited to announce our vocal teacher for Lyric, Áine Tyrrell. Áine's music cradles the spirit of her native homeland, and tips the cap to a notable family history of Irish music tradition. Ache, honesty, elated melodies and garnishing rhythms which a thousand years of ancestry have slammed foot to floorboards for both celebration and protest. Áine's music has grown from those traditional Irish roots into a truly contemporary sound. Her music is tribal and wild, but also fragile, heartbreaking and, most of all, immaculately crafted.
Lyric will be stepping up onto a stage at the Brunswick Festival of the Voice on 31st May for their inaugural performance.

Rhythm is our teen base. We offer term by term courses in the Performing Arts for teens to build skills, confidence and work towards solid outcomes. We aim to pin point what teens want, and tailor our courses to allow students to not only enjoy what they are learning but to hopefully then use their skills to promote local employment opportunities and performing arts culture within our local region. We hope to connect the dots between teens and pre-proffessional industry experience.
