You Raise Me Up

The 2019 Evening of Fine Music certainly lived up to its name with powerful voices, outstanding musical pieces and several surprising performances.

The audience, safely cocooned from the wild, wet weather were treated to 25 sensational performances including solo voice and instrumental pieces, numbers from our String, Violin and Woodwind Ensembles and big concert tunes from our Intermediate Band and Senior Band.

The concert started with a moody opening number by Georgia Easton, followed by the crowd favourite, Heath Cauchi crooning ‘Sway’ by Michael Buble. Our Year 12 students, Ben Oliver and Emily Tang delivered accomplished performances in trumpet, voice and cello. 

Solos in the euphonium, flute, guitar, piano, trumpet and violin proved there is plenty of talent in our younger years. Several pieces were outstanding in their execution.

The larger cohorts of students involved in our String, Voice or Woodwind Ensembles gave strong performances, from pieces that soothed the soul to ones that had you tapping your feet to the music.

The Junior School Choir and Senior School Choir performed together for the first time to close the concert with a beautiful rendition of “You Raise Me Up”, and they did indeed.

We thank our talented and gifted team of tutors, teachers and support staff for their vision and drive in bringing the Evening of Fine Music to fruition, especially Mrs Nicole Finch, Head of Junior School, Ms Amy Howes, Music Teacher and Mr John Collyer, Head of Creative Arts.

Congratulations to all the students and a big thank you to the parents for encouraging your children in their musical studies and performances.
