Term 2 has been a very active one for Junior Music.

Year 4 attended the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra before returning back onsite to sing as one of the Bumble Bee choirs, along with Year 3. The celebration of our Bumble Bee choirs was well received by our students and all of the many parents in attendance. Our younger choir, Piccolo Canto, also performed before a very appreciative audience a repertoire of songs from the British Isles. As part of the Whole School String Concert, both Metcalfe Strings and Junior String orchestras performed before a capacity audience in IWA along with other string groups from across the school. Following on from these concerts, our more experienced ensembles and choirs performed for the Junior School Winter Concert. Groups including Plecstrum, Bel Canto and Vivace choirs as well as Los Bandidos performed before a large and highly enthusiastic audience. Some of our Year 6 students also performed as soloists at this concert. Abigail Su and Yuna Kim are to be congratulated for their confident performances on the night.

As we now head towards the semester break, it is heartening to know that our training ensembles are also growing and developing. It will be wonderful to hear groups such as Beginner Band next semester as they continue to progress and grow in confidence as musicians.

I would like to pass on my congratulations to all of our musicians, singers and music teaching staff for all of their hard work throughout the term and wish them a well-deserved rest over this holiday period.
