Musicland has been busy this term with many performances at assemblies and other events. The Senior Jazz Band performed at our annual Chaplaincy dinner, playing many favourite jazz standards including Summertime, Mr. PC and Cantaloupe Island. A capacity audience watched Kew’s Got Talent in the theatre. A variety of performances from a variety of year levels put together acts that were very entertaining and well-rehearsed. Bands also played for Shave for a Cure, which has become an annual fundraising event at school. Our Music Camp in May was very productive, as students and their teachers immersed themselves in all day workshops and performance preparation. It was a most enjoyable and productive week! The Mid-Year Winter concert, in the theatre, featured all of our ensembles and was a very impressive showcase of students’ talents and the work that they have done for the semester in their music lessons and group rehearsals. Thanks again to the Q Network for putting on the refreshments and to the art staff for the magnificent display of student work in the foyer. Next term, we will be presenting our Jazz and Swing Night among other performances. Check the Newsfeed for details.
