Congratulations to the following girls who undertook significant musical opportunities during the last holidays.
Lucy Blomfield (Year 12), Veronica Vella (Year 10) and Stephanie Gough (Year 9) took part in the Gondwana World Choral Festival from the 15th – 21st July. There were over a thousand singers involved from all over the world, including Estonia, Latvia, France, China, America and all states of Australia. The concerts were held at the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and they were also broadcast nationally. The girls thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Ella McKenzie (Year 9) attended the Young Mannheim Symphonists Winter School presented by the Australian Romantic and Classical Orchestra from 8th – 12th July at Santa Sabina College. Ella plays the French Horn and she spent the week performing both Orchestral and Chamber works under the guidance of professional musicians.
The time in the holidays provided an excellent opportunity for these girls to extend themselves as musicians and collaborate with other students with similar interests.
