Instrumental Music Semester One
 
 

So far 2014 and has been overflowing with opportunities for Toolooa’s Instrumental music students.

  • Students were nominated for SHEP (State Honours Ensemble Program) with successful students from Toolooa being accepted into this prestigious program.
  • Toolooa Strings and Concert band students performed at the Annual Ice Creamery performance in April and wowed the spectators with a few strong and striking pieces.
  • The month of May saw Toolooa students enjoying the annual Music camp at Tanyalla Recreation centre in Tannum sands. The students worked hard polishing their repertoire for the upcoming Fanfare performance, as well as many fun and engaging team building activities that assisted in further bonding within the team. The parents were greatly impressed by the students’ performance at the concert held at the end of the camp. Their skills had improved out of sight due to participating in this camp and students really enjoyed themselves.
  • Students recently performed in the FANFARE competition held at Gladstone South state school. Local schools brought their talented bands and ensembles along to compete with only 1 school over the two days walking away with a Gold award. Toolooa concert band was awarded an esteemed Silver award for their entry. The school, parents and students are very proud of their efforts.
  • In the final week of this term Toolooa Instrumental music students will be participating in a Primary schools tour of local schools, to perform their recent repertoire. This is an exciting excursion enjoyed by all.
  • GYMC workshops– July 16-18 (all yr. 7 students + selected yr. 11 & 12 student tutors) is in the making at the moment. All invited students are required to return their notes to the front office as soon as possible, and year 7 students are urged to make an early bird payment to receive a discount.
