Top Acts 2016
Update May 2016
Ashley Griffin (VCE 2015) was selected to perform as part of the Top Acts celebration this year at the Melbourne Recital Centre.
Top Acts is a spectacular concert of contemporary and classical music, dance, drama and theatre performances plus original music works – Top Acts features outstanding VCE performing arts students selected from the Top Class 2016 concert series.
The concert offers a one-off chance to see some of the state’s best young performing artists. Ash previously performed at the Top Class Music concert as an electric guitar soloist, and his original composition was showcased at the Top Sounds Concert at Melba Hall.
Ash held the prestigious role of closing the concert and finished the night with two pieces, a solo of Andy McKee’s Drifting, a highly complex fingerstyle guitar piece and an original composition by Ash, Go Get It, a jazz-funk piece performed by a full band. Band members included Ash himself, as well as past College students Liam Martin, Lachlan Powell, Anastasia Likouresis, Conor Clements and Hector Harley.
The calibre of the night was outstanding, but without any bias whatsoever, our students were the absolute highlight. Well done!
