Singing praises en masse
Gin Gin, Wallaville students join massed choir of 600 voices in city
DISTRICT students showcased their creative talents at Creative Generation – State Schools on Stage 2015 at the Brisbane Convention Centre last week.
A group of 23 students from Gin Gin and Wallaville state schools travelled to Brisbane to join 1500 other students from across Queensland, performing as part the choir in the wonderful performance spectacular of Creative Generation – State Schools on Stage.
Creative Generation has become Queensland’s largest youth performing arts event, with a 600-voice choir, 65-piece symphony orchestra, the James Morrison Creative Big Band, as well as 80 drummers, 100 massed string orchestra and more than 500 dancers and 45 featured vocalists from prep to Year 12 coming together to present four performances at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.
The confidence, self-esteem and knowledge gained by the students involved with Creative Generation helps to prepare them for life beyond the school gate.
Regardless of whether they wish to seek a future in the arts, the experience gained and the exposure to industry leaders will stay with them forever.
This opportunity to attend has been made possible with support from Bendigo Bank, Toowong State School for accommodation and our parents.
Creative Generation will be shown on Channel 10 on Saturday, December 12, at 2.30pm.
