Congratulations to our senior choir students who participated in the Primary Schools Festival of Music performance last Sunday evening at the Festival Theatre, with great support from families and school staff.
The Primary Schools Festival of Music, an official state icon, is a public school-based music education program which is collaboration between DECD and the SAPPS Music Society which gives all SA public primary students the opportunity to perform at a prestigious venue.
This year the Festival started in the jungle (Jungle Rhythm), looked at environmental sustainability through the commissioned work “Mission Possible” and ended Bollywood style with “Jai Ho”.
In between there were a number of Assisting Artists from public primary and secondary schools, other choir items that presented different musical genre and two pieces that specifically showcased the talents of the orchestra.
It was a pleasure to be part of the audience and to enjoy seeing and hearing the excellent choral and performance skills of our students, who have developed these under the mentoring and lead work of our Performing Arts Teacher, Kerry Rayner. Thank you also to our accompaniest Felicity Williams, for her ongoing support.
Special acknowledgement to the following students, who over the two week festival, were part of the troupe / orchestra and took on soloist roles – Ethan, Isabelle, Lucy, Jemma, Tahlia, Azalea, Holly, Josh and Leah.
Well done to all.
