20 September 2018
On Thursday, 13 September, the music department showcased the talents of over 50 students from Years 7-12 at the annual Music Soiree. The night included both solo and ensemble performances, providing students with the opportunity to display their hard work from throughout the year.
The concert was a wonderful display of talent, ranging from piano, to the euphonium, with some students performing brilliantly after only a term of lessons, and with others sharing their love for music that has grown over many years.
As a Year 12 music student, I was extremely impressed with the talent and dedication that was put on show. The cultural department has some very exciting years ahead, as there are some very promising junior musicians that shared their passion and gifts with us all last week.
A very big thank you to Ben Gregory, Macy Byrnes (music captain), Celia Gall (cultural co-ordinator), Jo Porch, Pauline Hong, the instrumental staff and accompanists and Sammy Camilleri for making this year’s Soiree possible and so successful.
The Music Soiree brings to an end the major cultural events of the year. It has been a big year being the 125th anniversary of the school, but I am very proud of the talent and hard work that the cultural department has showcased. The 125th Opening School Mass, the production Legally Blonde, Adelaide Exchange and dance concert were just some of the many events that highlighted the variety of abilities that those within the cultural department have to offer.
On behalf of the cultural teachers, I would like to wish all Year 12 students studying music, drama, dance and theatre studies, all the best with their upcoming performance exams, we are sure that each and every one of you will do the school, your teachers and most importantly, yourself extremely proud.
I would also like to wish the 2019 cultural captains the very best of luck in what is sure to be another big year of cultural events, and I hope that the cultural department can shine as much as it has this year.
