Music News | Preparatory Schooldeveloper
This week we welcomed Ms Jo Ah Park as a 1 day a week Administrative Assistant in the Music Department at the Preparatory School (Mondays only). We hope Jo enjoys her time with us.
This week we concluded our Semester 1 Studio Concert series in the Mozart Room. Thank you to the boys for their commitment to their Instrumental Music studies as we celebrated over 175 solo performances and two ensemble performances. Stay focussed boys and keep up the good work. Remember to always acknowledge your accompanist, as you do not do the performance alone and announce your name and piece in a clear voice. Looking forward to the Semester 2 concert series already!
Thanks to members of Percussion Ensemble and Mr Alistair Wallace for their performance on Tuesday at the Combined Chapel.
Trinity Singers Rehearsals Week 8
An email was sent earlier in the week – but to recap – due to the Public Holiday and the Gala Concert being held on Thursday evening 16th June, all Trinity Singer Rehearsals are cancelled in Week 8. Boys will be travelling to the City Recital Hall on Thursday 16th June at 8am and they must be in their full winter uniform (they will not be attending sport in the morning). Boys are to meet Mrs Campbell in the Mozart Room by 7:50am as you will leave your school bags there, a roll will be taken and you only require your excursion bag with something to read, water bottle and morning tea. We need to depart by 8am.
As a result of the Gala Concert being held on Thursday 16th June, Concert Band and Chamber Orchestra rehearsals will also be cancelled that afternoon to allow boys, staff and families time before meeting in the Foyer of the City Recital Hall at 6:15pm again in full winter uniform, clean shoes and tidy hair.
Year 4 Band Program
The Year 4 Band/Strings Program will cease in Week 9. Year 3 will experience this program in Semester 2 which will then bring us into sync with the Junior School in 2023. If you know you will be absent in the final week of this term or earlier, your band instrument must be returned to Mrs Campbell before you depart so they can all be sent away for cleaning ready for Year 3 in week 1 Term 3.
***Change to Music Co-curricular Rehearsals Term 3
As from Term 3 there will be a few changes to the Music Co-curricular Timetable:
Monday: 7:45am -8:25am Primary Choir (Beethoven Room) and Chapel Band (Mozart Room)
Wednesday: Trinity Singers ALL rehearsal 7:30am-8:25am (Mozart Room)
