Our mission

CRASHENDO! Bairnsdale is part of an international social change program providing intensive instrumental and choral group tuition resulting in life-enhancing experiences for children, families and the community.

We encourage the natural inclination of people to share and help each other learn.

Our programs are socially and culturally inclusive, and offer opportunities for regular performance and engagement with other ensembles.
