Young talent was nurtured under stormy clouds in the Central Highlands on Sunday afternoon.

Music students from Trentham District Primary School were the young performers welcoming concertgoers to the summer concert being held by MITCH (Music in the Central Highlands) at the beautiful 'Rocklands' property near Redesdale.

"It's exciting to see such enthusiastic young people keen to come out in all sorts of weather," said MITCH chairman Bern Barry.

"I formed MITCH five years ago to invite young musicians to perform as an avenue to build their confidence and musicianship in a public domain." Music teacher Andrew Zollia led the enthusiastic children through their repertoire before the concert by 'The Session Trio' and Liz Frencham and Robbie Melville.

Music in the Central Highlands is an organisation focused on the promotion of fine music in the Central Highlands region of Victoria.

It is a registered not-for-profit organisation and all proceeds from MITCH are channeled to creating educational opportunities for up and coming young performers in the region.

Since its establishment in 2012 MITCH has donated almost $10,000 to the Central Highlands musical community.
