Terang College cello player, Jordan, along with our other instrumental music students, has been busy rehearsing his pieces to play at our Spring Concert this evening at 7.00pm in the Middle Years building.
We hope you can come along and see Jordan and our other instrumental music students in action!
Families and friends are warmly invited to join our music students in celebrating music at Terang College, at our Spring Concert.
Students learning an instrument outside school are also invited to perform at the Spring Concert. Please contact Mrs Pugh by email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to perform at the Spring Concert by Friday, 6 September.
On Friday night, our Year 2-4 singing group and Mrs Pugh’s instrumental group represented Terang College at the Nexus Concert in the Civic Hall. Both groups did an incredible job performing, as did the students who performed in dancing groups, Liam King on bagpipes and Emily Fuge’s solo violin performance.
Special mention to the Year 2-4 singers who were incredibly resilient when their music wouldn’t play initially, and even sang Advance Australia Fair as an acapella alongside Mrs Mackinnon.
Well done to all involved. It was a successful night for our students.
Last Thursday, violin students Airlie Beasley, Renee Cowan and Curtis Benallack attended the South West Youth Music Festival at Kings College in Warrnambool, along with over 120 other instrumental music students from south west schools.
The SWYMF was founded three years ago by our Instrumental Music Teacher, Fiona Pugh and Hannah O’Neill, Brauer College – Head of Music so instrumental music students in the south west region could get together annually to play in bands and orchestras, and celebrate music in schools.
Airlie, Renee and Curtis spent the day playing in a large String Orchestra with other string students from Warrnambool Primary School, Brauer College and Kings College. They learnt new skills and gained valuable experience playing in an orchestra. They all thought the sound was pretty loud and amazing!
On Friday, 19 October our instrumental music students along with Camperdown College took the bus to the Lighthouse Theatre to see the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Children’s Concert. Mrs Pugh was very excited to see her former cello student from Melbourne, now Dr Richard Vaudrey, who compered the MSO Children’s Concert.
The Concert started with Richard playing ‘Shotgun’ on the ukulele and everyone sang along. This was followed by the orchestra playing a stirring excerpt from Symphony No. 40 by Mozart. Students learnt about the orchestral instrument families, such as the string family. Chayse was an assistant on stage, along with other students who helped Richard and Tianyi Lu, the Conductor identify each family of the orchestra. Students then heard pieces played by each instrument family or section of the orchestra. This included a very fast plucked or pizzicato piece for strings by Benjamin Britten which impressed our students.
Students also liked the French Horns who were dressed up as super heros! Richard did some funny dance moves, including flossing, when he pretended to conduct the orchestra which made students laugh!
After the Concert, students got to meet Richard and the MSO Conductor Tianyi who encouraged students to keep playing music. It was a great experience for our instrumental music students to see and hear a symphony orchestra for the first time.
