Last Friday, Braemar College hosted the inaugural Music@The Mount Workshop, and it was an inspiring day for all who attended.
Around 70 musicians from Sacred Heart College, and Southern Cross Grammar joined Braemar College Year 5 to 12 students for a day of great participation and entertainment.
All up, we had a band of over 100 members including instrumentalists, strings, vocalists, guitarists, percussionists and keyboardists.
It was a fabulous opportunity for students to collaborate with likeminded musicians, and be inspired by the talents and dedication of others.
The group worked on five pieces through the day and performed for a small audience of middle school and invited parents at the end of the event.
After the success of this year’s Music@The Mount, we are looking to expand the program in 2016.
Interest has already been expressed by other Sunbury, Gisborne and Kyneton schools who were unable to participate this year. We are also planning a possible evening concert where all schools can participate, and the joint ensemble will get together to wrap up the program.
