2017 St Mark’s Concert
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all the instrumentalists for their wonderful performances at our end-of-year instrumental concerts recently, a celebration of another year of learning for our developing musicians.
The concert theme was “Number One Hits”, with each student performing a solo piece of their choosing and participating in a group song relating to the theme. The group songs are an important part of our music program because they provide a valuable opportunity for the students to develop aural skills and musical confidence, and help with practice motivation because they are part of a team.
Well done to students who were presented with awards on in recognition of dedication across a range of areas such as home practice, perseverance and attitude:
– Guitar Award Recipients: Angelidue Flaskis, Elise Meurs, Joshua Valvo, Thomas Guilano &William Mahmoud
– Outstanding Musical Achievement Award Recipients: Matthew Balogh, Kobe Wanajesekera & Lachlan Trinh
We would also like to recognise the wonderful achievements of Kobe
Wanigasekera who undertook his Grade One Guitar examinations with the
Australian and New Zealand Cultural Arts Ltd in 2017 and got a very high mark.
Thank you to all instrumental parents for your continued support of your children’s musical endeavours through home practice and encouragement and a big congratulations to all the students who took part in the music program this year. We are very proud of all of you!
