ANZCA's 2018 Graduation Ceremony and Concert was held on Saturday, 17th of March at Methodist Ladies' College in Kew (Vic.).

Chairperson Barry Archibald, Director Maureen Milton OAM, General Manager Tony Betros and Publications Manager Andrew Craggs were pleased to welcome many of our successful 2017 diploma candidates, some of whom had travelled from regional areas and interstate to attend. We were also delighted to welcome ANZCA's Patron June McLean and retired Vice Chairperson Ivor Morgan.

The concert programme featured performances by the attending graduands, and included Romantic and Contemporary piano works, modern singing and drum kit. Particularly impressive were guests Sarah Brown and Cassandra Gibson, who performed Sarah's prize-winning composition Wedding Cake Mountain. For more information on this piece, see the Monash University entry on the University Prizes page.
