What an incredible experience this week’s concert was for all involved, as well as our community members in the audience. The strong focus on collaboration was very evident in all aspects of the performance – for staff and students. Hamer Hall was almost a sell out, with most available seats in the stalls and circle snapped up by family and friends. The audience was treated to some superb performances, as the ensembles showcased their individual and combined musical talents. The talent of the student performances was simply breathtaking and the production transitioned seamlessly from one ensemble to the next. It really was a magnificent celebration of ACC Music!
My congratulations to the wonderfully talented and dedicated Music staff that played such a pivotal role in its success. I would like to acknowledge the Production Team members in particular for their great work over the past 12 months – Cindy Frost (De La Salle College), Stuart Collidge (Whitefriars College), Martin Macaulay (Parade College), Carmelo Puglisi (Emmanuel College), Doug Leutchford (Mazenod College) and Bronwyn Dean (St Joseph’s College Ferntree Gully). Their vision and insightful planning helped to create an incredible experience for performers and audience alike.
There was also a huge team of helpers working hard behind the scenes, with some having limited vision of the actual music on stage. I would like to acknowledge their contribution and thank them for playing such an important role. A selection of images from the event are included below and a video summary of the concert will be available in the near future. The video to open the show is below – this is a brief insight into our Association, leading towards a focus on music:
