Digital Student Leadership Team

We have been very fortunate to have Lucas Berry,  James Thompson-Hicks and Andrew Nie continue in the role of BHHS digital student Leadership Team. They were joined this year by Imaran Singh and these 4 boys were instrumental in making the year 7 laptop introduction session successful. They supported the teachers during this session and demonstrated technical prowess to solve the difficult problems. We have also recently welcomed Sam Gill to the team.

The team meets fortnightly to discuss any ideas they have that will support the use of technology at BHHS. Currently the students are in discussion to set up a digital club open to all students at lunchtime.

New members are welcome, please see any current members or contact Ms Bottrell if you are interested in joining. 

Australia Youth Orchestra

 

Early this term, I was very lucky to be selected as part of the Australian Youth Orchestra for their annual February Concert Season. In total, this is the third season I have been part of and I count it as not just an incredibly useful program for developing my own skills on the Violin, but one of the best and most inspiring experiences of my life.

The Australian Youth Orchestra (AYO) is the premiere youth orchestra available to musicians in Australia. Made up entirely of musicians under the age of 25, the orchestra allows the top young musicians from all parts of Australia the opportunity to learn and love music in a professional rehearsal environment, working with some of the best orchestral musicians in Australia as tutors and with internationally renowned conductors and guest artists.

This February, the AYO gathered for a week of intense rehearsals at Melbourne University, culminating in two concerts at the Melbourne Recital Centre and the Ulumbarra Theatre in Bendigo. We played three pieces under the baton of Dutch Maestro Antony Hermus, including the Hebrides Overture by Mendelssohn, Ravel’s G Major Piano Concerto with soloist Andrea Lam, and Mahler’s 4th Symphony, with soprano soloist Penelope Mills.

Exhausting 7.5 hour rehearsal days were common, and on top of this, we attended professional development sessions to further our knowledge about all aspects of the professional music environment. For instance, we watched an MSO rehearsal and listened to orchestral management staff talk about their crucial role keeping orchestras running.

AYO was a wonderful time for me and I will keep the friends I have made, the memories and the experiences I had with me forever.
