Southside String Festival (SSSF)
The foundation of Southside String Festival is established by a group of music educators collaborated with the local music institution Music Creators who saw the need to fill a gap in our community to ensure all youth string player had more opportunity to showcase their brilliant performance and experiential learning. Brisbane is developing as a music hotspot with most exciting and innovative music festivals and competitions. Southside Brisbane has a substantial number of young musicians, especially in classical strings. We aim to provide an environment to motivate young students to develop their skills and raise artistic levels.
Please Note: Due to the current situation with Covid-19, we have decided to extend the competition in it's online format. New for 2021 will be the inclusion of the Online Ensemble Sessions.
