Director of Music | Mr Brad Esbensen

Last weekend, the Red Thunder Drumline and Fanfare Trumpet Team performed at the official opening of Festitalia! at Newmarket. They performed for the various dignitaries present including the Lord Mayor and Italian Ambassador. Congratulations to these young men on the way they represented Terrace Music in the wider community.

This evening we have our final Chamber Music Concert for the year and wish all performers the very best.

On Monday 16 October, we will be holding a special workshop for featured artists who will be performing at this year’s Celebration of Excellence. Email notifications will be sent to those involved.

Next week we have our annual Jazz Night held at Boggo Road Gaol and will feature all of our jazz groups. Our special guest artist for the evening is Dean Vegas, Australia’s number one Elvis impersonator. This will be a great evening as always and if you would like to join us and “do time on the inside”, book your tickets through College Events.

We have very recently discovered an issue with the new emailing program that is currently in the process of being resolved. Could you please check Parent Lounge for events (listed below) as there are a number of emails that are not being delivered.

The Terrace Jazz Orchestra will perform on College Assembly next week.

Please see below for the list of Term 4 events. Please remember to accept tour notifications as they are sent through Parent Lounge and check Event Memos (available through the Terrace App).
