Sariah Xu – Music Scholarship

Sariah Xu, who had just completed her third year of B Music at the University of Queensland, is one of the most talented viola players of her age in Australia. She has benefited greatly by receiving a music scholarship to continue her studies whilst living at Duchesne. Sariah recently travelled to Europe with the Australian Youth Orchestra performing in Amsterdam, Berlin, Kassel and Switzerland. One of Sariah’s most memorable moments was her first European concert at the Berlin Concert House because the audience was so appreciative of their music. Sariah also performs with the University of Queensland Orchestra.

Sariah is the eldest of two sisters undertaking university study so the scholarship which she has received for the past two years is particularly helpful for the family. Life at Duchesne has been everything Sariah hoped for and more and she feels supported in all aspects of her College life. “The people at College are always there for us and it is fantastic that I can access a practice room at all hours, without disturbing the other students”, she said.

In addition to studying and performing Sariah also finds time to support the community and recently participated as a volunteer in the Channel 9 telethon.
