The music program in Western Port brought three primary schools together last month to perform for parents and friends.

Music teacher Adrian Allen says, “There was real excitement around this concert. The standard is constantly improving and perhaps what is most noteworthy is the level of interest I see in the schools in the preparation and desire among the students to aim for a high standard of performance.”

There were 55 Primary students from: Tyabb Rail, Hastings, and Wallaroo. The primary voices opened the show with Senzenina – South African Folk Song in two part harmony, Fire and the Flood – Vance Joy and they closed the show with I Aint Worried – One Republic and I Got Bills – Lunch money Lewis. This last item featured three girls from Wallaroo Primary School who sang the rap section dressed up as Rap Rock Stars

The remainder of the Concert was made up of Senior items from Western Port Secondary College which included several vocal solos, small rock bands and large ensembles and the senior vocal group.

Adrian continues, “The highlight for me was a student in year 7 who I taught at Crib Point Primary School. Her name is Natalie Murray and she sang a beautiful rendition of My Immortal by Evanessence and accompanied herself on the piano.”

The October Concert is being planned, rehearsals have commenced and it promises to be a real showcase of talent featuring year 3 and 4 students from the four schools and the Crib Point Rock Band. This concert will also see the Primary school children playing instruments on stage as well as singing and the use of costumes and dance routines in some items.
