Music Matters

IB Music Recital

The 2020 IB Recital will be broadcast this Thursday evening, 18 June. This is a very special concert at which our Year 12 IB students will perform a solo 20-minute recital and showcase some of their original compositions. Remote learning at the beginning of this term created challenges for the ensemble items on the program; however, these were overcome by short, intense periods of rehearsal on Wednesday afternoons both during and post remote learning. Ashleigh Dowling, Zoë Forbes and Clarisse Liew will perform on piano, flute and violin respectively and they will present a varied program of music from all periods of western art music as well as offering folk, jazz and world examples. The original compositions include a string quartet arrangement, a flute trio, jazz ensemble and a clarinet and piano duet. This concert represents 50% of the students’ marks for the subject and it is a culmination of not only the last 18 months of study in senior music, but also of the many years of practice and instrumental study, which have preceded this concert.

Please contact the music department by emailing if you would like to be sent a link to this event.

Speech and Drama Performance

A wonderful array of entertaining Speech and Drama performances was shared with family and friends at the online annual Speech and Drama Concert on Wednesday 3 June. Students from Years 2 to 7 recited poems and excerpts from play scripts, complete with backdrops and colourful props and costumery.

Vice Principal, Mr Jason McManus, was thrilled to be invited to this special online event and thanked the performers and our wonderful Speech and Drama teacher, Ms Cecily Clarke, at the conclusion for all of their hard work preparing the performances. Speech and Drama lessons are part of the co-curricular offering at Tintern and they allow students to explore and develop their public speaking and dramatic interpretation skills in both individual and group lessons each week. If you have a child who might benefit from such skill development, please contact Mrs Feenane in the Music Department on 9845 7837 for further information about Speech and Drama lessons.
