NEVR YOUTH CONCERT – “Fire and Rain”
On Monday 25 students from MWSC had the privilege to take part in the annual NEVR Youth Concert held in the prestigious Hamer Hall. Six students Clarrisa A (Year 8), Julian D (Year 9), Erasmus H (Year 10), Jacqui N (Year 10), Purvi S (Year 9) and Tej T (Year 11), were all selected to take place in the combined Symphonic Band. This group was made up of primary and secondary students from the North East of Victoria, and after two mass rehearsals played beautifully.
In addition to this, the MWSC Stage Band were selected as a feature stage act through an audition process. The band performed two songs and through hard work and practice, performed magnificently to a large crowd of over 2000 people. Overall, this was an amazing experience for our students having the opportunity to play in a concert hall with beautiful acoustics and professional sound and audio equipment.

Perth Tour Concert – Thursday 8 June at 6:30pm, Unicorn Theatre
The three groups traveling to Perth on a music tour have been busily preparing for the trip and are polishing the musical sets in readiness. A tour such as this takes a lot of hard work, both from an administration and musical perspective. We invite the college community to attend a free concert next Thursday to celebrate and farewell the Symphonic Band, Stage Band and Jazz Combo.
