Generations in Jazz 2019, held in Mt Gambier, was one of the best we have attended with all our ensembles giving their best in their performances and as well as experiencing world class concerts throughout the weekend. All our students were fine ambassadors for the College.
Congratulations to our Senior Stage Band, who were awarded 3rd place in Division 2 and Daniel Watson, who was selected, on percussion, for the Division 2 Super Band. Although our Jazz Combo didn’t place, they did come 6th out of 20 ensembles and were just behind Victorian College of the Arts ensembles who were in 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th place. Camberwell High’s VCE Group Performance came 2nd (all
Year 12’s). Our combo consists mainly Year 10’s and one Year 11!
Last week, our Junior/ Intermediate Autumn Concert was a sold out and was a great success. Well done to all performers and conductors. A special thanks to our stage crew who kept the concert going at least 10 minutes ahead of time!
