Musos get a taste of life on the road
ST ANDREW’S Anglican College Primary Musicians recently got the opportunity to hit the road and share their passion for music on the Primary Music Tour.
Over three days, the students travelled to the Gold Coast and took part in workshops with Cannon Hill Anglican College and Coomera Anglican College.
They had a fun day at Movie World, before travelling back to the Sunshine Coast and visiting local retirement and aged care facilities.
Residents at the Aveo Peregian Springs Country Club enjoyed performances by the concert band, string ensemble and jazz ensemble and residents of Arcare Aged Care in Peregian Springs enjoyed the primary girls’ choir and the boys vocal ensemble.
From the smiles on the faces of guests and performers alike, it was a wonderful experience.
Director of Co-curricular Music, Andrew Eunson said touring provided musicians with the crucial link between practise and performance and gave the students a taste of what “being on the road” as a musician was like.
“These experiences are vital for all musicians in the 21st Century,” Mr Eunson said.
