iServi News | 16 October 2020 | Term 4, Week 1
Term 3 proved to be a busy Term for music students at Servite College, with plenty of performance opportunities for students to showcase their talents.
Week 5 saw St Philip Feast Day celebrations bring out in the inner performers in four Bands (Year 7/8, Staff band, Year 10 Girls Ensemble and Combined Year 8/9/10 Rock Band), plus rappers, duos and various soloists. The St Philip Day concert provided students a special opportunity to perform for a student and staff audience, something that was severely lacking during the COVID-19 pandemic. Special thanks to Grace D’Arcy and Jak Fazari for providing the music to complement the Feast Day Mass.
A revised version of the Catholic Performing Arts Festival in Week 6 gave students the chance to show off the pieces they had been learning in their lessons. Congratulations to vocal students Chloe Lazaroo, Elizabe Visser, Anika Desai, Sarah Chen and Grace D’Arcy, to Daniele Lennon (Piano) and to the Year 8/9/10 Combined Rock Band for participating and proudly representing the College.
Mental Health Week in Week 8 was another event packed full of musical performances. The Year 10 Girls Ensemble, Staff Band, Jak and Dalinda duo and the Combined 8/9/10 Rock Band provided entertainment across two lunchtime concerts.
An open music rehearsal was held in Week 9 for our College Open Day, an opportunity for the community to see how we approach ensemble music as well as a chance for our students to utilise important rehearsal time.
Term 3 culminated with the Performing Arts Concert in Week 10 which was a great success with bands, duos, instrumentalists and soloists all participating.
Special thanks to the Performing Arts and IT Teams for their assistance with our music program.
We look forward to more music at assemblies, Masses, Graduation events and pop-up concerts in Term 4 to complete what was been a big year for music at Servite.
