Anson Kung Selected for Australian Honours Ensemble Program

Performing Arts

Year 9 student, Anson Kung, was recently selected to participate in the prestigious Australian Honours Ensemble Program (AHEP) for the third consecutive year. Each year, the best student musicians from across Queensland submit their video auditions in the hope of being chosen for the Australian Honours Ensemble Program and orchestra, which is held at the Queensland Conservatorium at Griffith University in Brisbane. This is an incredible achievement for Anson, who has worked tirelessly to become an accomplished violinist. Congratulations on your continued success and we wish you an incredible experience at AHEP from 26 September - 1 October!

Anson also sat his AMEB AMusA exam, an Associate Diploma of Performance, on Violin. For his preparation, Anson performed a concert of his pieces and delighted the audience with his exceptional performance. Anson played four pieces from the AMEB AMusA syllabus:

  • Spring composed by Vivaldi from the Four Seasons.
  • Beethoven violin sonata opus 23 in A minor
  • Schumann violin sonata opus 105 in A minor
  • Josef Suk’s Appasionato from the Four Pieces
"What a journey it's been for me! After hours and hours of practice, the fullest determination, and craving for perfection, I was finally rewarded with the AmusA Violin Diploma for a whole year straight. This stage of music is very special as not only are you assessed on your skill as a musician, but you are assessed as a music performer. With the help of the amazing Mrs Harm, I was able to perform my AmusA repertoire in front of parents, students, staff and teachers to prepare for what was to come next. And now the hard work has finally paid off. In future, I will aim to get my Licentiate in music."
