Amazing music amazing students

2/05/2014

Members of the State High Marching Band once again did the school and the community very proud with their impressive playing on ANZAC Day.  Leading the state schools in the march, their sound and professionalism were duly noted by community members. Well Done.

The State High Flute Ensemble, comprising of Kelsy, Lara-Jane, Danielle, Abi‑Gail and Sophie recently performed a 30 minute set at the opening of the Don Roderick Art Gallery, in conjunction with 10 Days in the Towers. Art enthusiasts were able to enjoy this wine and cheese event whilst listening to a diverse repertoire from Handel, the Beatles, Game of Thrones and even Miley Cyrus. The ensemble was snapped up shortly after finishing, booked in to perform at The World Theatre Art Gallery opening on Wednesday 30 April.

The State High Wind Symphony and Big Band are making final preparations for Famfare 2014. Students have given up extra weekends, lunch times and before school to rehearse. We wish these students the best of luck, as they venture to Townsville on Tuesday to compete against other State Schools around Queensland.

Congratulations to Year 8 students Romi and Ruby who will represent State High at the 2014 Middle School State Honours Program this month. They will join other students from grade 6-9 across the Townsville region in a three-day band workshop. We hope they have a great time and make some amazing music.
