Encore Performance

Congratulations to Year 12 student Ben Meller for his nomination to ENCORE for his impressive music performance for the HSC. ENCORE is a prestigious event, featuring a select program of outstanding performances and compositions by students, across New South Wales, who studied music for their HSC.

 

Ben has had a love of music from a young age. He developed a passion for jazz and film music over the course of his schooling. He is an accomplished pianist able to improvise at will.

 

Ben was last on stage accompanying Colin Buchanan at the Year 12 Final Chapel.

Some of his musical highlights during his time at SGCS include playing piano for a number of Musicals, Evening of Fine Music, Chapel Band and school performances. However, one of his most memorable moments was when he visited Government House and was given the opportunity to play on the Grand Piano. With less than one hundred Australian-made Stuart & Sons pianos in existence, this up-and-coming musician relished the experience to play on a 97-keyed piano.

 

 

As Ben’s schooling concludes, we at SGCS would like to thank Ben, we will miss his stage performances and impromptu sessions on the grand piano during lunchtime.

 

What a treat it was to walk across the Campus to the sound of beautiful music.
