The Hanna siblings seem to be proof
of the saying that the family that plays
together, stays together.
Natasha, 22, Karla, 20, and Josef,
18, from Melbourne, were all home-
schooled and all began studying the
violin at the age of three.
And this year they are all taking part
in the Australian Youth Orchestra
National Music Camp for the first
It s an intensive two-week
experience that s been run since 1948
and since 2005 has alternated between
the University of Adelaide and the
Australian National University.
Each year, more than 200 people
aged between 14 and 30 are chosen
from auditions by more than 1000
applicants to work with conductors,
soloists and orchestral tutors (up to age
22), as well as gain experience in
composition, administration, music
journalism and sound recording (up to
All three Hannas said they were
enjoying themselves and Josef and
Karla said they would definitely
apply to take part in the camp again
while they were still young enough to
It s incredible to be among so
many like-minded, passionate people,
it s really good, Josef said.
Natasha, a casual performer with
the Melbourne Chamber Orchestra,
said among the unfamiliar pieces she
was learning in the camp were
chamber works by George Frideric
Handel and John Adams.
Karla and Josef were playing in the
Bishop Orchestra this week and
rehearsing works by composers
including Maurice Ravel and Astor
Leading the orchestra in Piazzolla s
Bandoneon Concerto while playing
was one of the camp s artists-in-
residence, Scottish-born classical
accordionist James Crabb, who is also
a first-timer at the AYO Summer
I love it, Crabb said of the
experience. The quality of the
playing is exceptional.
The AYO s chief executive officer,
Colin Cornish, said Crabb and the
other artist-in-residence, recorder
virtuoso Genevieve Lacey, were two
artists who would represent their
instruments at the Olympics, if these
were the Olympics .
Free public concerts by performers
at the Australian Youth Orchestra
National Music Camp at Llewellyn
Hall, ANU School of Music, are on
January 14 at 8pm and January 15 at
5.30pm and 8pm.
Charity day to
Two eager couples began the Green
Shed in 2010, and since then, the
resource management centre four
have generated more than $300,000
for small Canberra charities.
Charlie Bigg-Wither, Elaine
Stanford, Sandie Parkes and Goran
Srejic committed to their idea to help
since they opened their doors, hosting
a charity day on the last Wednesday
of each month, when proceeds are
directed to a chosen charity until
a total of $10,000 is reached.
RSPCA ACT will be the 30th
organisation to receive the $10,000
from the Green Shed through the
scheme. After the donation cheque
is presented at the RSPCA s Weston
Creek shelter on Wednesday, the
Green Shed will set its sights on
fundraising for Diabetes ACT.
The Green Shed s contributions to
the community have been recognised
by the Commonwealth Bank s
Australian of the Day initiative which,
recognises everyday Australians who
are making our country the amazing,
diverse and unique place it is .
Children living in and visiting
Bywong will soon be able to play on
the community s first playground,
after the state government announced
grant funding for the project.
An $11,000 grant was given to the
community for the playground to be
built next to the hall.
Member for Monaro John Barilaro
said the closest playground was about
10 kilometres away in either
Bungendore or Wamboin.
"The playground . . . will enable kids
to be able to have somewhere to be
active in a safe environment, when
there are functions on at the hall or on
