It has been a busy week in the Music Department this week with eisteddfod performances every night featuring our Strings and Choral students. Our students rose to the occasion beautifully with every ensemble gaining a prize in the various competitions. It is particularly impressive to see these achievements in so many ‘Open’ sections, meaning our groups were competing against some adult groups and community groups as opposed to purely schools.
Our students achieved the following:
Chamber strings - Open String Ensembles - 3rd Place
Symphony Strings - Open String Orchestra - Highly Commended
OC Chorale - Secondary Choral Section (Non-Auditioned) - 3rd Place
OC Chorus - Open - Jazz or Pop styles - 2nd Place
Redback Chorus - Open - Jazz or Pop styles - 3rd Place
Chamber Singers - Secondary Choral Section (Auditioned) - 2nd Place
OCTAVE - Small Vocal Ensemble - Open - 3rd Place
OC Singers - Senior Primary Choral Section - 2nd Place
Kinder Chorus - Junior Primary Choral Section Year 2 and Under - 1st Place
Pochino Choir - Junior Primary Choral Section Year 4 and Under - 2nd Place
We are very proud of all the students who participated in these performances. Thank you for representing Ormiston so well. We look forward to Part 2 of the eisteddfod next week with performances by our College bands.
