Roberto Cavagnoli was born in 1975, July 8. He graduated in 1993 at the international School of violin Maker “Antonio Stradivari” in Cremona under the guidance of M° Giorgio Scolari displaying great bent for carving wood.

After the school he spent many years of training in Angelo Sperzaga’s workshop, where he improved manual dexterity and style on classical Cremonese models with particular attention for brush – painting. Then, between 1998 and 2000, he worked in M° Barbara Piccinotti’s workshop. He took care of clean lines, imprinted a sound research and he developed a personal style. In 2001 he received an offer overseas. So, he went in Australia where he had the opportunity to work with M° Jeams W. Robinson. He made his own the necessary shrewdness for a fine instruments set – up. He deeper the sound research. In 2003 he participated at 10th Cremona Triennal with a viola and cello with excellent results. In 2004 he won a Silver Medal for the cello tone at the V.S.A. Competition in Portland (Oregon) U.S.A. In 2005 he participated at the Mittenwald Competition with a viola. In 2006 he won the third prize with a cello at the XI° International competition “Triennale” in Cremona for the personalized work and for the excellent quality of the sound. In the same year he participated at Poznan Competition. He is a member of the “Group of Professional Violin and Bow Makers”, the Consurzium “A.Stradivari” of Cremona and V.S.A.

AMACO successfully performed for Australian Prime Minister!

We are extremely excited to announce the Arco Music Academy Chamber Orchestra has been invited by Mr David Coleman MP to perform at the Chinese Community Associations Leaders with the Prime Minister, Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP. As the first chamber orchestra established in Hurstville, AMACO quickly gained recognition within the community with its successful debut concerts at Penshurst RSL Club and Homewood Care. The AMACO Musical Director Shilong Ye has bought beautiful music alongside with Arco Music Academy teaching staff at this wonderful occasion hosted by Mr David Coleman MP.

 

There are many words you could choose when it comes to describing these wonderful young musicians of Arco Music Academy Chamber Orchestra, but according to our Prime Minster Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP, he simply told the players after the performance, "Well played." The Chinese Ambassador Ma certainly agreed with that, who was also there last night to enjoy the impressive performance from AMACO. Congratulations to our young orchestra! We cannot thank David Coleman MP enough for inviting us to this amazing event, and we'd like to thank our wonderful staff Su Choung and Li Gu who were there from the beginning to the end of our performance. AMACO Musical Director Shilong Ye certainly had a big smile on his face after the performance!

 

As promised, here's the photo of AMA Chamber Orchestra with Prime Minister Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP, Ambassador Ma Zhaoxu, Consul General Li Huaxin, and David Coleman MP after our successful performance at the Chinese Community Association Leaders Dinner. The AMA Chamber Orchestra quickly gained recognition in the Hurstville community with its successful debut concerts at Penshurst RSL Club and Homewood Care. We would like to thank everyone for your continuous support and certainly welcome new members to join our ever-growing family. As our MD Shilong always says, "the beauty of this chamber orchestra is there is no limitation of what instrument you play. If you play a musical instrument, you're welcome to come and audition!" If you'd like to find out more about AMACO and Arco Music Academy, get in touch with us today!

 

If you want to attend AMACO’s next public concert, come and listen on 12 December for an unforgettable live performance experience. We thank everyone for your continuous support to Arco Music Academy and AMACO!

St George Eisteddfod was one of the most important eisteddfod for our children for 92 years, but sadly it was facing closure due to a lack of financial support from businesses and individuals.

Arco Music Academy, as a leading academy in St George area, which presenting opportunities for all our students who will benefit from the chance to perform in this event, we are very glad to donate our time and money to support this worthy event which will benefit countless students in the future. We also named and creat one of the biggest prize in this eisteddfod as "Junior Strings Championship" for strings players to have more motivation in performing in such a great event.
