Week 7 Term 2 Performing Arts News

Performing at the Brisbane Jazz Club on Saturday

We had a couple of days to take a breath after the Jazz Bands spectacular performance on Saturday and the Brisbane Jazz Club before launching into the Queensland Youth Music Awards.

This week’s assembly on Friday 27 May will have the Wind Ensemble performing. Ensemble members please be at school by 8am to set up and have a quick look over the pieces. You are required to wear your normal Friday uniform.

Sydney Tour Information

Important information: Our Sydney Tour Parent Information evening is tonight – Thursday 26 May @ 6.30 pm in the Chapel. Please come along and find out all of the ins and outs to do with our Sydney tour. If you are unable to attend, please email Mrs Scalia and she will send your packet of information in the mail.
STOP PRESS: The tickets for the Sydney Opera house performance are now on sale through the Opera House website:
Individual tickets are $33 each (all categories are the same price) and there is an $8.50 transaction fee. The ticket type is general admission – which means there is not allocated seating. We will meet half an hour before the concert (which begins at 7 pm) and enter as a group hopefully!


Handbell Performance
The Handbell Workshop and Concert is on Saturday 28 May at Coorparoo Secondary College (12pm to 5pm).
An information letter has been sent home and you can follow this link to pay for the workshop and concert. We would love to see parents and family members at the Concert to watch some extra-amazing handbell ensembles.
