Studio Concerts

The Studio Concerts for Semester 2 have now concluded and congratulations to all performers and Instrumental Music Staff.  There were over 150 solo performances in the ten Studio Concerts presented and all students demonstrated commitment to their instrumental music studies. Keep up the good work and I look forward to what 2023 will bring.

Year 3 Band Program

The Year 3 Band Program will cease on Friday 18th November as Week 7 is Orientation Day for 2023. Students are reminded to have their instruments at school that day so they can be handed in and checked before being sent away for cleaning in readiness for the Program in 2023. Thanks to all the hard work from the Summer Hill Instrumental Staff in making this program the most successful regarding the uptake of Private Tuition.  Students who are using School instruments for private lessons must also hand their instruments in and speak to the Instrumental Teacher concerning purchasing your own for next year.
