Young Musicians Shine at Music Enrichment Program
03.06.24
Years 4 and 5 Music Enrichment Program

On June 4, enthusiastic Year 4 and 5 students, nominated by their Catholic primary schools, gathered at St Edward’s College for a memorable Music Enrichment program. This exciting event, organised by Mrs Annette Rankin and supported by talented Year 9 and 10 students from both St Edward’s and St Joseph’s Colleges, aimed to ignite a passion for music and performance among the young participants.

Throughout the day, the students embarked on an enriching musical journey filled with diverse activities. They participated in an African drum workshop, a vocal workshop, explored innovative sounds with computer music, and learned to play and sing a group band piece, “Three Little Birds.” This piece was specially arranged to accommodate all instruments and voices, ensuring that students of every skill level could join in and contribute.  The sessions were run by our Performing Arts faculty: Mrs Annette Rankin, Mrs Jodie Connor, Mr Paul Toole and Mr Justin Kane.

The culmination of their hard work and creativity was showcased in a special performance for their families, highlighting the students’ ensemble talents and enthusiasm. The Music Enrichment program not only provided a platform for young musicians to shine but also fostered a sense of community and collaboration across different school years and institutions.

We would like to thank all staff and students involved in making this day a success. Your dedication and effort have made a lasting impact on the young musicians who participated.
