Generations in Jazz - Mt Gambier 2018
41 students and 4 teachers left Strathmore last Friday morning, destination Mt Gambier, South Australia. Our M1 and D13 Big Bands, along with our Chamber Choir, performed in the annual Generations in Jazz Festival/Competition.
So did over 5000 other students from all around Australia!
Not only did we participate in the competition parts of the festival, we were lucky enough to be able to attend three fantastic concerts in the massively big main tent. Featured in these concerts were James Morrison, Patti Austin and, the band, Cat Empire. What a fantastic time we all had. Students and teachers have all come back inspired by the musicians we saw and the music we heard.
Thanks to the students, who musically and socially represented our college so well, and to the teachers, who gave up their entire weekend to give the students this fantastic experience.
