Congratulations to all musicians who have performed in Round 1 and 2. The Music teachers and tutors are very proud of the students who were brave enough to enter, and thoroughly enjoyed hearing everyone play at the Round 2 concert. We encourage you to enter again in 2018.

 

Music in the Park

The weather was perfect on Sunday for our annual Music In The Park event at which all of our ensembles performed. It was a great opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate all that our Music students have achieved so far this year.

Thank you so much to our wonderful Music Supporters’ Group and parent volunteers who helped make delicious hamburgers and pasta on the day, and who brought freshly baked goods to sell as a fundraiser for the Music Department. We are grateful to have such a supportive group of parents helping our musicians perform at their best.

 

Queensland Youth Music Awards

Three of our choirs have competed at the QYMA festival over the past two weeks. Each group performed very well, with both Senior School and Auditioned Choirs receiving Silver Awards, and Red Shirt Choir receiving Bronze last night. Congratulations to these ensembles.

 

Strings Tour to Bundaberg

Our Vivo string ensemble, and selected members of the Allegretto string ensemble, are preparing for a short tour to Bundaberg in the June/July holidays. As part of the tour, they will be performing at a number of schools in the area, as well as for residents at a local retirement village. We hope that they have a wonderful time and have great performance experiences.
