Director of Music | Mr Derek Rose

I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music. ― Billy Joel

Holiday workshops

The holiday break was a productive and busy time for many musicians within the Terrace Music program. Our Big Band rhythm sections worked on developing their skills and mastering new styles and genres of music. The Guitar Orchestra workshopped and recorded over two days - stay tuned for their new video to be released soon. With the Celebration of Excellence almost upon us many instrumentalists and choral students were involved with rehearsals in preparation for the event.

Celebration of Excellence rehearsals

All students in SWE, TJO, Waterford String Orchestra and Waterford Strings 2 will have rehearsals each morning next week from 7am until the end of Pastoral Care as they prepare for Celebration of Excellence. The Terrace Choir and Youth Choir will be required from Wednesday morning onwards.
