Director of Music | Mr Brad Esbensen
Please check the Terrace App and Parent Lounge regularly.
This weekend, the Red Peppers Pep Band will be performing for the tunnel and half-time show at the GT v ACGS football game at Tennyson. The group was well received at their debut performance a fortnight ago and we are once again looking forward to a spirited performance from these young musicians.
On Saturday evening, the Terrace Jazz Combo will be performing for the Term 2 Sports Launch at Tennyson. This group is largely self-directed and always do an outstanding job at these events.
On Wednesday 17 May, several of our students will be representing Terrace at the GPS Music Showcase. This will involve a day of rehearsals and workshops, followed by an evening concert in the QPAC Concert Hall at 7pm. Shortly, free tickets for the event will become available for anyone in the community wishing to attend. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your tickets and they will be forwarded to you once they become available.
Registration for the Pemulwuy! National Male Voice Festival is now open. Pemulwuy! is a triennial event based in Brisbane, Queensland and we have always had a good representation from Terrace in previous years. It aims to encourage males throughout Australia to engage in singing at whatever level of experience they find themselves and to build networks between conductors and artists who work in this unique field. If you would like to register or find out more information, please visit http://www.pemulwuy.org.au/wspHome.aspx
Congratulations to the Terrace Jazz Combo for their performance on College Assembly this week. Next week, there will be no College Assembly due to NAPLAN Testing. The following week will feature the Symphonic Wind Ensemble under the direction of Mr Jan Hewerdine.
For those of you who participate in our Premier Ensembles, the Terrace Shop now has a selection of black microfibre shirts available for $50. These will be required, along with black trousers, for the Norman Clarke Concert later this term.
For those students who perform with our beginner and intermediate level ensembles, it is a requirement that they wear grey trousers for performances. This provides a more formal and unified look as opposed to a mix of trousers and shorts. The first big concert event for these groups will be the Winter Concert on Thursday 18 May. Trousers are available from the Uniform Shop in sizes from 8 to 18. Students who perform only as part of the Year 5 and 6 Band and Strings classes do not need to purchase trousers.
Please check the Terrace App and Parent Lounge regularly as this is where information regarding various events (see the list below) will now be published. As events are approved and posted to the Parent Lounge, you will be sent an email advising the name of the event, including the Event Memo, to check and you will be required to give a response regarding attendance. Event Memos will also be available through the Terrace App in CultureàMusic.
