Combined Ensembles Day
This year's Combined Ensembles Day saw music students from the Middle and Senior School campuses come together in a fantastic day of music and friendship.
Workshops were held by various music and instrumental staff so students could work together, learn from each other and focus on performance skills and technique. A lunchtime concert was held featuring various rock bands, as well as the Senior Campus Jazz and Guitar ensembles.
The day culminated in a performance for Year 7 students. All of the large ensembles presented their work and the instrumental and vocal students joined together to present a mass ensemble performance of 'Can't Stop the Feeling'.
Thank you to the music and instrumental staff for preparing for the event and to the students for making it such a success!
ABODA Band Festival
Congratulations to our Drum Corps and Studio Ensemble who competed at the ABODA Band Festival at Westminster College last week. Our Drum Corps, under the direction of Paul Lewis, attained Gold in the Open Percussion - Drumline Section and were announced equal winners with Cabra College. It was the first time the group had competed with a line-up from both the Middle and Senior Campuses.
Our Studio Ensemble attained a Silver in their Stage Band section.
Thank you to the parents who came on the day to support the groups and congratulations to the students.
