Combined Primary Schools Band and Choir Annual Concert

On Friday, 30 November, the Combined Primary Schools Band and Choir performed at the Derwent Entertainment Centre.

Now in its 43rd year,having begun in 1975, the Annual Concert is the culmination of a year’s dedicated musical study and commitment and showcases the achievements of 1000 students from 28 Department of Education schools, performing a large range of musical styles and genres in Concert Bands and a 350 voice choir

The concert also included a special guest appearance from the Montrose Bay High School Senior Concert Band and was opened by well known Tasmanian Actor and Education Ambassador, John Xintavelonis.

The value of music within our education system is so important.  Learning music and the experience it provides students with helps to bring students together, teaches the importance of teamwork, participation and personal expression as well as building self-esteem.

Congratulations to all of the teachers and organisers of this fantastic program, and a very big congratulations to all of the students who performed.
