About us

The Music Performance Unit of the University of New South Wales is a small team responsible for the production of high quality classical music concerts on campus. A core of UNSW's cultural life, the Music Performance Unit manages several primary activities, including:

  • Australia Ensemble UNSW, Australia's leading chamber music ensemble that presents an annual subscription season and free concert and workshop series;

  • Burgundian Consort, a chamber choir of 12-18 voices of high quality young singers. It presents an annual evening recital as well as appearing at concerts of the Collegium Musicum and other special events;
  • Large Instrumental Music Ensembles (LIME) comprising the UNSW Wind Symphony and UNSW Orchestra;
  • Young Artists Concerts and special events.

The Music Performance Unit is in the portfolio of the Director of Student Life, Mr Neil Morris.

The job


Anastasia began violin studies when she was 7, inspired by Hubay's 'Carmen Fantasy' and Prokofiev's First Violin Concerto.


If you've never been to a 'classical' music concert, it can seem a bit daunting, but don't worry!
