It was time to shine for our Year 2 to 12 students who took part in the Spring Concert at the Wonthaggi Union Community Arts Centre, and shine they certainly did!
While every ensemble delivered a polished performance, the standout highlight for the evening was the debut of the Concert Orchestra and Vocal Groups who came together to close the evening performing ‘Colossus et Spiritus’ and ‘Lord of the Dance’. The stage was overflowing with over 70 students, music staff and parent musicians and the audience rightly demanded an encore.
The evening celebrated the culmination of many years of work to develop our music program to such a high standard and our students did both Newhaven College and themselves proud.
The performances themselves were superb, but within each ensemble there was a success story not just for the group, but for many individual students who excelled through hard work and dedication, or were helped to overcome their own personal challenges through being involved in music.
College Principal, Gea Lovell gave, “…full credit and huge accolades to all in our music team, and to our Director of Music, Kirk Skinner.”
