Year 7-8 Orchestra News

Congratulations to the Year 7-8 Orchestra on their performance in the Victorian Music School Festival.

On Thursday 11th June the orchestra made their way to the Hawthorn Performing Arts Centre where they performed Knight’s Quest and London Symphony, followed by a masterclass with the chief adjudicator. They then heard three other schools perform. Hearing other ensembles’ performances and workshops was very educational, especially in terms of encouraging the children to analyse their own and others’ performances.

At the very end there was a short presentation where each ensemble received a rating. Our orchestra received a Silver rating. Two of the other (private) schools also received a ‘Silver’; Blackburn High received a ‘Gold’.

The children are to be congratulated for their composure, musicianship and their ability to accept feedback. And above all for their fine performance!

The Year 7-8 Orchestra rehearses every Thursday afternoon from 3:00-4:00, new members welcome in Term Three.
