Luke says: Each year there are exciting opportunities for students to develop their musical talent through the Junior and Senior State Music Camps and the Sydney Region Band. I would encourage all students to consider applying for these very worthwhile activities.
STATE MUSIC CAMPS – all information including application forms can be found at: http://pau.nsw.edu.au/Music/Music_Camp/index.htm
SYDNEY REGION BAND
A camp and performance opportunity for talented musicians in Sydney Region. The Band is open for students in Years 5, 6, 7 and 8.
The focus of this activity is a three-day and three-night camp from 6 June to 9 June 2010, to provide opportunities for pupils to develop their skills in band performance and musicianship. It also provides an opportunity to bridge the gap between primary and secondary school. Primary students will gain skills working with Year 7 and 8 students while Year 8 students will have the opportunity to take a leading role within the ensemble. As a result of the camp, most participants will be invited to perform at various Regional and State functions.
Applications for the Sydney Region Band are by audition. The auditions will be early in Term 2.
When completed, all nomination forms should be returned by Wednesday 31 March, 2010:
