What a Year It’s Been for Music at Rehoboth!
Our students have learnt about music around the world, keyboards, ukuleles, drumming, music technology and composition, among other things. We’ve also seen performances from various ensembles including our Junior and Senior Worship Bands, Secondary Choir and Year 8, 9 and 10 Music students.
Term 4, as always, is a busy time of year for our Music students. Our Secondary Choir visited Manoah House this week to sing for and spend some time with the residents. We performed five pieces for the residents, who sang along to the popular favourites that they were familiar with. It was great to be able to give back to the community, and share our love for singing.
Our Instrumental Music Program (IMP) also has continued to grow this year, with almost 200 students undertaking weekly lessons with our specialist music tutors. Our students have performed at various concerts and events, including the 50th Anniversary Celebrations, the Arts Festival Evening Concert and the Wilson Open Day.
Our Kenwick piano and flute students had the opportunity to perform in front of their family and friends at the Piano and Flute Concert on Thursday, 17 December.
We enjoyed a great night of music, and it was wonderful to see how many people turned up in support of our students. The students are all to be commended on their performances, as it’s not always easy performing in front of a large crowd!
The IMP will be offering the following instruments in 2017: clarinet, flute, saxophone, violin, voice, guitar, piano and drums. If you’d like to enrol your child for lessons in 2017, please fill in an IMP Application Form 2017, which can be found here on the College website.
Enjoy the break, and we’ll see you next year for another year of music-making!
