THIS year in Music, we have launched a new standard of excellence, innovation and collaboration. The year has once again been full of outstanding performances from ensembles and individual students and the Grand Music Showcase was no different. For the first year I believe all the music performed at our Senior Grand Music Showcase was original concert music. Not student level arrangements, but the same music that a professional orchestra or choir would perform. The students enjoyed this experience immensely – rising to the challenge of executing a higher level of difficulty and delivering with exceptional style and grace. From the Concert Band’s rousing introduction of energetic rhythmic complexity to the Symphony Orchestra’s performance of the 1886 Version of Mussorsky’s ‘Night on Bald Mountain’, the Senior Showcase created a buzz within the audience. Bella Nolan-Sannia’s unforgettable performance of Corby’s Resolution arranged for full Chamber Orchestra showed innovation in the program and once again the Stage Band displayed slick articulate ensemble playing to finish out the night in style. The Junior/Middle showcase also shone brightly with students beaming with pride after mastering their performance. This show proved the musical future of our School is set to flourish.
