Singing praises en masse

Isis Town and Country - - Koian News -

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.
