Music Gala hits the right notes

Posted on in General, Uncategorized

Our College community gathered in the Nagle Centre on Thursday 1 September to support our Junior and Senior School students as they took to the stage to present a variety of instrumental and vocal works.

An outstanding celebration of music and choir at SMC, the Music Gala gives our Performing Arts students the opportunity to showcase the breadth and depth of their talents and accomplishments.

Audience members were treated to stellar performances from the College concert band, rock band, string ensemble and student choirs, along with our instrumental soloists and vocalists, that kept fingers and toes tapping.

Some highlights of the evening included vocalist Grace Simonetis (Year 11) with a soulful rendition of ‘Gravity’; the Rock Band taking it up a notch with their covers of ‘Can’t Stop’ and ‘Iris’, and the Senior Choir bringing the event home with a grand finale-worthy performance of ‘Fireflies’ and ‘Somebody to Love’.

Our Junior School performers also stole hearts with their amazing stage presence and high energy performances. For some students, this was their first time on the big stage, and they did their families and teachers proud!

Well done to all students who performed on the night, and a big thank you to our dedicated music staff, Scott Weston, Mary Heferen-Faulkner and Maggie Bowman, for all their work in bringing this Gala together.
