Music Camp 2019
By Stephanie Coram
On Friday 22 February students, in Camerata choir, Corelli Chamber String Orchestra and Bernstein Symphonic Wind Orchestra headed off to Green Hills Centre for music camp. This is an annual event that provides the opportunity for students to work intensively with their co-curricular music groups, honing their skills as an ensemble and preparing for performances in the year to come.
Over the three days of music camp, each group spent over nine hours in intensive rehearsals, resulting in a fabulous concert on Sunday. Vox, our more junior auditioned choir, joined the camp rehearsals on Saturday afternoon to rehearse repertoire with Camerata that they will perform together at the Foundation Concert later this term.
It wasn’t all work, however, as the students got involved in fun water activities and of course the traditional trivia night, a highlight of the camp. We would like to thank all the staff involved, particularly Mrs Knight, for all the work they did in organising and assisting at music camp. And finally, thank you to all the students who gave up their weekend. It was fun, and no one could say we were underfed!
