Performing Arts News Week 3 Term 4 2016

After one of the most successful events in the history of the College the Cocurricular Music Department is very thankful to the ATC community for their support, attendance and enthusiasm for Jazz by the River. Families gathered by the river to enjoy performances by our talented musicians, singers and magicians. The crowds wandered through the wonderful exhibition of outstanding artwork and displays.

It was wonderful to see everyone enjoying time with friends, sharing a picnic rug in the amphitheatre and gathering as a community to celebrate The Arts. Thank you to the organising committee who have been dedicated to this event for many months.
