Welcome back to the Music Department for Term 3. This is the term in which we have our annual major concert, the Spring Concert, as well as several smaller events and the annual auditions for ensembles. A list of dates has been sent home to parents and emailed to students and I would encourage families to read this carefully and keep it handy. More specific notes for each event will be distributed closer to the dates.

Bands Concert – our Concert Bands and Jazz Bands will present a concert at 3pm on Sunday 9 August at Canberra Grammar School. All girls in these bands must attend, and parents and friends are warmly welcomed to come along and support the girls in their performances.

Choral Concert – all the Senior School Choirs will be performing on Sunday 30 August at 3pm in the CGGS Chapel. This concert is being recorded for a CD which will be available to order on the day.

Spring Concerts – these are being held at 1pm and 3.30pm on Sunday 20 September in the CGGS Senior School Hall, and will involve most of the Senior School ensembles. Detailed information will be produced shortly.

Music Ensemble photos will be taken between 3.30pm and 4.30pm on Monday 10 August. All students in all ensembles are required to attend. This year will have a much earlier finish than usual and students should be done by 4.30pm.

Congratulations to Charlotte Strong (Year 12) for an outstanding result in her recent Certificate of Music violin examination. This is a high level exam that occurs after a student completes Grade 8, and is very demanding. Charlotte’s hard work over many years paid off as she was awarded an Honours grading.
