Week 3 term 4

Written by ChissyMusic

 This week in music news, the school jazz band enjoyed performances at the Big Band Festival over Labour weekend along with 16 other jazz big bands. We also had members take part in a workshop with Rodger Fox. Here are a couple of photos from Thursday at Re: Start mall with Halswell and Medbury in conjunction with Kids in Town and then on Monday at the Botanic Gardens. These were great opportunities for family, friends and general public to hear our band as well as others. The choir performed an item at the Big Band service on Sunday morning.
