Centenary Celebration

The Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB) celebrated 100 years of service to the music community at a Government House reception on 15 May 2018. Her Excellency, the Honourable Linda Dessau AC hosted a morning tea with invited guests, including former and current Board members, teachers and examiners.

The Governor poignantly noted that the AMEB was established during the midst of the Great War: “How heartening that, at that time of destruction and sadness – for the world and for Australia – the beauty of music could so aptly reflect the goodness that remained in the world. On 15 May 1918 – 100 years ago to the day – the Australian Music Examinations Board became a federal entity.” The Chair of AMEB Victoria, Professor Barry Conyngham AM, thanked the Governor for generously hosting the morning tea and presented a copy of a new AMEB publication, A Centenary Celebration: Australia Music Examinations Board 1918 – 2018 by Dr Rita Crews OAM.
