Our Junior String Ensemble, who rehearse on a Tuesday morning before school, concluded the evening with Joe Hisaishi’s Laputa, Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto #5 and Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect”.

Thank you to all parents for their support and especially to our two string teachers, Lore Burns (Cello) and Les Gyori (Violin) for all their work preparing, accompanying and supporting their string students.

We look forward to another string soiree in our new Auditorium in Term 4.

We would also like to welcome a new string teacher, Keely Moggach, to our instrumental team. Keely will be working at MGC on Wednesdays.
