2017 St Louis Concert
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all the instrumentalists for their wonderful performances at our end-of-year instrumental concerts recently, a celebration of another year of learning for our developing musicians.
The concert theme was “Number One Hits”, with each student performing a solo piece of their choosing and participating in a group song relating to the theme. The group songs are an important part of our music program because they provide a valuable opportunity for the students to develop aural skills and musical confidence, and help with practice motivation because they are part of a team.Well done to students who were presented with awards on concert night in recognition of dedication across a range of areas such as home practice, perseverance and attitude:
- Keyboard Award Recipients: Ava Petrichenko, Clancy Lambe, Emma Fisher, Layla Maternia, Lucia Villanti, Matilda Laughlin, Siena Turner & Vivien Peiris
- Guitar Award Recipients: Daniel Cussigh, Harrison Ward, Heidi Sinclair, Jada Neves, Jarrod Villanti, Kai Buza, Kiara Lawrence & Milo Arrowsmith
- Vocal Award Recipient: Ethan Summers, Lana Nicholls
- Clarinet Award Recipient: Liam Richardson
- Drums Award Recipient: Ryan Comas
- 2017 Outstanding Musical Achievement Awards:
Grace Costigan (violin), Luciana Avila (Keyboard), Tom
We would also like to recognise the wonderful achievements of St
Louis’ students who undertook instrumental examinations with the
Australian and New Zealand Cultural Arts Ltd in 2017:
- Grade Preparatory Piano: Kaden Lee & Lucas Karvonidis
- Grade Preliminary Piano: Will Martin
- Grade Two Guitar: Jessie Laughlin
- Grade Three Flute: Lily Shipham
We would also like to extend a thank you to all instrumental parents
for your continued support of your children’s musical endeavours
through home practice and encouragement.
A big congratulations to all the students who took part in the music
program this year. We are very proud of all of you!
