Arts Workshop Weekend (4-6 March) (Issue 4 2017)
Written on the 23 March 2017
As soon as the senior students finished their Sports Day on a beautifully hot summer's day, the Performing Arts students were preparing for an intensive rehearsal weekend at the College, the Arts Workshop Weekend. With a variety of music groups along with the Stage 2 Dance and Drama classes, the Performing Arts Centre was buzzing all weekend as students prepared the repertoire and pieces they will use for performances and assessments throughout the year.
The group of more than 60 students from the Senior and Middle School campuses rehearsed all weekend whilst still having some time to relax together and play some good old retreat games. On Saturday afternoon we came together for a liturgy where we reflected on the amazing gifts we have been given and how we plan to use them. It was a special time to come together.
We also saw some performance debuts at Saturday night's in-house concert, combined with some veterans of the Debourg Centre. It was a great night of celebrating our shared love of music and the arts. On Sunday morning the students presented the whole weekends' work with a public performance for parents and friends in the auditorium. It was a great concert to a nearly packed house and an excellent way to publicly show the fruits of the weekend.
The Arts faculty and instrumental staff involved on the weekend were:
Special thanks to all of the staff involved as well as the 2016 Arts Captains, Alex Cruz and Nastassja Beatrice who worked well together to pull off another amazingly successful Arts Workshop Weekend.
Stay tuned for a variety of performances throughout the year!
