Both our Band and Choir represented St Bernardine's School so very well - excellent behaviour and musical skills were displayed. I was a very proud music teacher!
Our 16 Band students met nice and early with Mr Saunders at Villanova College. After a quick warm-up and rehearsal, it was time to take to the stage and showcase the 3 pieces they'd been working so hard on this year. The Band sounded amazing!
We returned to school for a short time after the performance... then it was time to take the 60 Choir students on the bus to St James Church! There was much excitement on the trip, plus a few nerves.
The Choir warmed up their voices and took the time to focus themselves before hitting the stage. The Choir performed 2 songs ('Weather With You' and 'A Mary Poppins Medley') and sounded incredible!
Here is a video of the Choir performing 'Weather With You' at St James Church:
I am pleased to announce the results from the festival.
Our Band received a GOLD award, and our Choir received a SILVER award. What a fantastic result!
A special thank you to Mr Saunders, Mrs Carabetta and Miss Rutland for helping our music students perform so beautifully. Also, thank you to the parents that greeted us at the festival to show their support!
