Lindfield Concert – Preparation
All the boys in the school are preparing for the Lindfield Concert which is being held on Tuesday 20 June in Centenary Hall on the Stanmore Senior School Campus beginning at 6:30pm.
The vocal items and the instrumental pieces are songs that are generally recognizable. The whole school items are “Circle of Life” from The Lion King and “Turn the World Around” by Harry Belafonte.
Each stage choir is also singing a song – the Junior Primary students are performing an arrangement of “Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree”, students in Years 3 and 4 are singing “Tum Balalaika” and the senior students are singing Toto’s “Africa”.
All the boys in Years 2, 3, 4 and 5 will also be playing the instrument they are learning in the instrumental program. It is wonderful to see the progress that has been made in the last few weeks by a number of the boys, as the practice has become more consistent. Please remember to look at the Practice Guide that can be found on the Music Spaces Page.
The School Ensembles are also each performing a couple of items. Again the before school rehearsals are vital for the increased level of learning and playing together which is necessary to create a really good performance.
In preparation for the evening, all boys in K – 6 will be travelling by bus to Stanmore on the morning of the Concert to rehearse their items. Centenary Hall is quite large and a very different sounding environment for the groups to perform in so it is really important for the boys to have the experience and time to rehearse and run through their items. A permission note containing all the important information will be coming home soon, please return it to your son’s class teacher.
