Two of our Music Department Staff spent part of their Easter holidays competing in the annual Queensland Eisteddfod. This year the 120 year old festival of music was held in Rockhampton attracting choirs from Ipswich to Cairns.
Penny White (Music Teacher Aide) and Ian Rix (Voice Coach) are members of the Sunshine Coast Oriana Choir and returned triumphant after two long days and nights competing in several different categories. The Choir placed in every event entered and were declared the run-away Grand Champion Choir. They both feel very honoured and proud to be a part of such a wonderful community choir and to be able to share their love of music and experience with our College community.
In 2014 the QLD Eisteddfod will be held on the Sunshine Coast and the talented Oriana Youth Choir will also compete. Cara Bales in Year 3M is a proud member of this choir much to her extended family’s delight. If your child would be interested in joining the Youth Choir please contact Mrs White on email@example.com for details.
