Performing Arts Night
On Wednesday 7TH August, friends and family were entertained at our annual Performing Arts Evening. It was an inspiring evening of music and performances with items to entertain all musical tastes. The Concert band set the evening with Stone Mountain Fantasy. Solo items by many of our students in the bands and individually on stage interspersed the various group performances. The String Ensemble performed two pieces. A combination of new students and more experienced string players blended well to perform Celtica. Some Great Moments from Shakespeare’s Tragedies were performed by our drama students. Jazz band played with style and featured the stunning vocals of Whetumarama Timutimu. Lots of applause from an enthusiastic audience for Jocco’s Groove – a jazz combination of Aquinas College and Tauranga Boys students. The Junior Choir and Voci Celesti Choir brought a most entertaining evening to a close.
It was a wonderful effort by our students including young students who have just started to be learn their instruments. It was awesome to see the mentoring of more experienced musicians and vocalists to these younger performers.
