Throughout the school year Junior and Senior School students have the opportunity to participate in choirs, bands and musical productions, which include dance and drama.
Junior School Ensembles
Junior Concert Band
Junior Concert Band runs for students in Year 5 and 6 who are enrolled in the Band Program. Other instrumental students also have the opportunity to be involved in this program. Rehearsals run on alternating Tuesdays and Fridays from 12:40pm to 1:30pm.
Year 5 and 6 Band Program
The Band Program is an outstanding opportunity for Year 5 and 6 students to access an integrated, group-performance based music program which develops musical skills that students can use throughout their schooling years and beyond. Musical knowledge learnt and applied in the program builds a foundation for lifelong enjoyment of music as a recreational or vocational pursuit. Students enjoy and benefit from an active engagement in music-making.
The learning of an instrument and participation in a band program includes many educational, developmental and social benefits for children. Many adults who have participated in such programmes in their youth have enjoyed these experiences and continue them long into adulthood. For more information, please contact the Music Department.
Junior School Choir
The Junior School Choir, under the direction of Mrs Diane Durham, meets regularly to rehearse on a Wednesday from 1:00pm to 1:30pm. It is an excellent opportunity for Junior School students to join a musical ensemble and experience the joy of performing for others.
Senior School Ensembles
The Girls’ Chorale has performed at a number of college functions over the years and is a perfect opportunity for students to increase their confidence and proficiency in singing in a friendly and supportive environment. Rehearsals run on Mondays at lunchtime from 12:55pm -1:30pm.
Intermediate Concert Band
Students enrolled in the Band Program continue to develop and refine their musical skills in the Intermediate Concert Band. The ensemble of brass and wind instruments will have an opportunity to play and perform together. The Intermediate Concert Band rehearses on Mondays before school from 7:45am - 8:30am.
Other ensembles, including contemporary ensembles, are formed from time to time as needed.
