12 years old young violinist, Rachael Gock is the Concertmaster of the Sydney Hills Youth Orchestra. She joined the orchestra in 2016 and has made significant contributions since then.
She is a very gifted young musician as remarked by an AMEB examiner on her AMEB Violin Certificate of Performance exam.
Quote a sentence of the examiner’s remarks: “Your performance projected a warm and expressive tone, and expressive phrasing, in particular the slow movement of the Mozart Concerto. This moved along well, the phrases were quite musically shaped, supported by a good pitch and a variety of tonal colors. Stylistically well understood.”
She has been learning the violin with Dr Koo for about 4 years and now is preparing her AMEB diploma exam.
Rachael is the Concertmaster of the orchestras of the SCO Youth Symphony – The Sydney Hills Youth Orchestra.
She received the Dr Koo Music Scholarship 2020 of $500 for her achievements and contributions to the Hills community in participating in the SYS activities.
The Dr Koo Music Scholarship 2020 is proudly sponsored by the Hills Shire Council.
