On Tuesday 8 September, some 350 students gathered at the wonderful Melbourne Recital Centre for our annual Whole School Concert. It was a huge day for our young musicians as they presented a fascinating range of musical styles. Each ensemble was well prepared, and their expressive playing was enhanced by the wonderful acoustic of the venue.

Adam Page’s solo set in the first half demonstrated his outstanding musicality and energy, and we now all know our Principal’s middle name! The specially commissioned work ‘The Field’ was a triumph! Despite a minor technical hitch, the colourful and expressive writing carried Adam’s musical images to a warm and receptive audience. It was a wonderful end to a fantastic term of music for Carey.
