Victorian State School Spectacular
On Saturday 16 September I had the privilege of being invited along to see the Victorian State School Spectacular at Hisense Arena. A number of MWSC students participated in the orchestra and the chorus. Featuring over 3000 students from government schools across the state, it was indeed spectacular. Congratulations to all involved.
Annual Gala Concert
The MWSC Gala Concert was held on Thursday 21 September in the Senior Campus hall. Featuring over 200 music students and 16 ensembles, the students from Years 7-12 performed to an audience of almost 400 people. Thank you to the staff, parents, carers, current and alumni students that attended the concert. It
is a great opportunity for our students to display their musical talents and show off the hard work that goes into weekly rehearsals. On a personal note, thank you to the dedicated music staff who help make this night happen.
Year 7 Band Program Concert
On Tuesday 17 October and Thursday 19 October, all of our Year 7 students took place in a concert. Featuring cello, violin, flute, clarinet, french horn, trombone, trumpet across the two evenings, the concerts were attended by a large audience. In the coming weeks students in Year 7 will have the opportunity to sign up for instrumental music lessons as an elective for 2018. I encourage all parents and students to consider the wonderful opportunity to learn from our dedicated and talented staff and belong to the extensive music department at the college.
Year 12 Solo Performances
Over the month of October and early November, our 11 Unit 4 VCE Solo Performance students will be completing this important exam worth 50% of their grade for the subject. This involves a 25 minute solo recital for external examiners. These students have worked tirelessly towards this for two years. Good luck to you all.
