WELCOME TO ENDEAVOUR COURSES
The course book for Sydney U3A is available on the sidebar of the home page of the Sydney U3A website. The Endeavour (Southern) region courses for 2020 will also be found on the sidebar of Endeavour’s main page shortly. If you are not already a member of U3A, you may obtain a hard copy of the course book by joining Sydney U3A. Forms are available on the home page of the Sydney U3A website or by contacting the Sydney U3A office.
U3A Endeavour Region has many and varied courses to offer its members. Languages, films, food for the brain and the soul, history of all sorts, arts, drawing and sketching, various approaches to music and film, and groups for discussion, about books, travel, lunching, science, general knowledge and for walking.
During the year we have periodic 5th Tuesday lectures on something interesting to which the public and all U3A members are welcome. As well, there’s the wonderful fringe benefit of fun and friends to be experienced.
Have a look in our Course booklet that comes every Semester to see what you might enjoy. If your chosen course is full, ask if you can go along for a visit or two to see what it’s about, see if you can go on a waiting list. Maybe you could become a course leader. Should you be interested in conducting a course within U3A and would like to discuss the matter further, please contact President Ian on
There’s also something called “Events for All” offering lectures, holidays, tours and outings. Check them out at the front of your Course booklet.

Manifesto of Explorations in Music
I am not here to teach you music. I am here to expand your musical appreciation by leading you through and exposing you to as many kinds of musical styles from as many sources and eras as I can.
I don’t want you to learn the notes but I do want you to feel the music. I would like you to absorb the sounds you hear as a sponge would absorb water. I would like your soul to be infused, filled and inspired by what you hear.
Some of the things I would like you to find as you listen to the music are: drama, romance, anger or irritation, beauty, hope, joy, serenity and a feeling for and an understanding of the magic of music.
