Co-Curricular Ensemble Rehearsals
All music co-curricular ensembles are currently rehearsing in preparation for the annual Music Showcase to be held on Thursday 22 June in the Performance Centre. More details will be forthcoming in the Newsletter and by email but, in the meantime, it is important to remember that rehearsals are continuing on a weekly basis in preparation for this important performance opportunity. These rehearsals will be continuing through assessment weeks, unless advised by individual ensemble leaders.
Senior Music Camp – Term 4
For those students involved with co-curricular music ensembles, we hold our annual music camp at The Collaroy Centre, to be held in 2017 from Monday 16 to Wednesday 18 October. Apart from the opportunity to rehearse intensively for performances in Term 4, the Senior Music Camp has become a significant cultural event for the musicians in our school community to the point where we now hold a separate concert at the conclusion of the camp at school. This will be held on Thursday 19 October in the Performance Centre. In 2017, we expect students involved with the Senior Orchestra, Senior Choir, Senior Concert Band, Intermediate/Senior Guitar Ensembles, Intermediate/Senior String Ensembles, Vocal Ensemble and Chamber Choir to be invited to this camp experience. Invitations to attend will be sent to parents/carers towards the end of Term 3 but, in the meantime, we need regular attendance at weekly rehearsals in order for this camp to be as successful as previous years.
