The Music Department has been very busy in 2015 with our music students provided with several opportunities to show their many talents. On Monday, 23rd November 2015, students performed a varied repertoire covering a range of genres under the guidance of Ms. Mckenzie. Performances included soloists and small groups with the school choir concluding the evening with excerpts from musicals. The choir also performed at the presentation night on Monday, 14th December 2015. The Gleneagles Summer Concert on Wednesday, 2nd December 2015 showcased the instrumental students who entertained us with a variety of instrumental items, solos, small ensembles and the Big Band directed by Mr. Dipnall and Mr. Dunn. There was also groups performances by the keyboard ensemble led by Ms. Goninon and the Violin ensemble directed by Mr. Maclean. The Junior and Senior bands performed with precision and the night finished off with the combined bands conducted by Mrs. Ball.
The year was concluded with a performance by the Junior Band at the Endeavour Hills Shopping Centre on Friday 4th December 2015 conducted by Ms. McAlister. Thank you to all the families who have supported their child’s music education and to all the instrumental music staff who for their dedication in enriching the lives of our Gleneagles students. Looking forward to a bigger and better 2016.
