Cheese and Chit Chat

What is a “Cheese and Chit Chat”?

CCCs are ABODA WA’s series of informal and informative network meeting sessions designed to regularly bring together the community of Western Australian band and orchestra leaders to share ideas and experiences concerning ensemble directing in a fun and friendly atmosphere with likeminded supportive and helpful musical colleagues.

All served with a delicious helping of cheese and refreshments.
