From the Head of Music, Chris Balkizas
Congratulations to the Music staff and students on the ‘Waverley College Showcase Concert’ held on Friday 25 May. It was a great success, musically and socially. Over two hundred students from years 5 to 12 were involved and wowed the audience with their performances.
The evening was hosted by Damian Lin (Music Captain) and Dominic Augoustis (College Vice Captain). They acquitted themselves admirably, presenting the items and entertaining the audience.
There were a large number of items, ranging from solo saxophone, guitar ensemble, rock band to various choirs and bands. The performances displayed a wide range of musical styles from classical and jazz to rock and contemporary art music.
Thank you to the large number of parents who gave of their time to assist with the barbeque, preparing the supper and serving at the bar, and also to those who donated generously to the silent auctions. Special mention must be made of Keiran Kossenberg, Claudine Tinellis, Paula Tsaousis, Veronica Giordano and Monique Pizzol who worked tirelessly behind the scenes for several weeks.
The evening was a great success and we look forward to the Farewell Concert for the European Music Tour on June 22.
