Annual Concert once again showcases our wonderful choirs and ensembles
On Friday 4 August, the Tintern Grammar Annual Concert took place in the CM Wood Centre. This event is the largest event on the Tintern musical calendar and there were over 150 students involved. During the evening, we heard from all 12 of our major orchestras, bands and choirs as they performed items they have been rehearsing diligently throughout the year. As is tradition, the evening finished with a massed item. This year it was a medley from Les Miserables, which we had learnt at our annual music camp two weeks prior. This item showcased students Eliza Mignot, Lucy Wheeler, Brayden Stokes, Jared Nottle, Grace Power, Audrey Middleton, Gerard Barclay, Gavin Choong, Fintan McCrave and Lovelyn Lim as they took to the microphone to perform the solo parts of the medley, supported by the medley band, conducted by Mrs Clarke and the medley chorus conducted by Mrs Bezaire. A massive thank you to all of the music staff, for their commitment, dedication and musical guidance in rehearsals and the lead up to this concert.

IB Recital promises to be a feast of delightful musical offerings!
Be sure to note the date and time in your diary: Thursday 14 September, 7.00pm in the CM Wood Centre. Not only will the Senior IB Music Class of 2017 perform solos for your enjoyment, you will also have the pleasure of hearing a number of their original compositions, which form part of their assessment for IB. These will include a beautiful choral setting of a French text by Charles Baudelaire, with music by Year 12 student, Josephine Owen, performed by the Senior Girls Chamber Choir.
To top this all off, you will hear a performance of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 in its entirety; a feat rarely attempted by a school ensemble. Supper at interval will be provided by the senior hospitality students. Download your flyer and pin it to your fridge or your “must see” space at home.
