Performing Arts News Week 4 Term 4 2016

It was a pleasure to see another superb performance by the Jazz Ensemble on Friday night at the Terrace Jazz night. The boys and Mr Skaar were brilliant examples of professionalism and talent and their performance was met with a huge round of applause. I would like to congratulate all musicians for attending and showing the characteristics of true ATC gentlemen.

Thanks to Mr Darren Skaar; Mr Jono Bolt and Mrs Natalie Scalia for supervising and managing our boys.
Well done also to the Symphonic Winds, ATC Big Band, Middle School Singers and Taiko Drummers for their performances at the Night of Excellence on Tuesday evening. Our parents never tire of hearing and seeing our Instrumental musicians perform and the dazzling and unique display by our Taiko Drummers was a highlight once again.
