Generations in Jazz
Music Trip to "Generations in Jazz" in Mount Gambier
Congratulations to the music students from D13 Big Band, M1 Big Band and the Chamber Choir who spent last weekend in Mount Gambier at the Generations in Jazz festival/competition.
Approximately 4600 students from all over Australia made their way, with their schools, to South Australia for the weekend to play and to see to some awe inspiring jazz performances.
Our three ensembles have worked incredibly hard since the end of last year to be able to perform at a very high standard within each of their divisions. D13 Big Band played in Division 4 Stage Band section, with M1 playing in Division 2. The Chamber Choir sang in the Division 2 Vocal Ensemble section.
Thanks to all the students who represented Strathmore so beautifully, both on stage and off! Thanks also to the teachers who prepared the ensembles so well and who gave up their entire weekend to give the students such a great experience - Tim Fisher, Dave Palmer, Mark Daniell, Luke Steward and Emma Pasierbek.
