FAN­FARE was ini­ti­ated in 1985 to foster the de­vel­op­ment and high­light the achieve­ments of school-based en­sem­bles in the in­stru­men­tal mu­sic pro­gram.

Since then, more than 140,000 in­stru­men­tal mu­sic stu­dents from across Queens­land have par­tic­i­pated in the pro­gram.

Childers stu­dents per­formed at the Wide Bay Fan­fare and came home win­ners.

Childers pri­mary school in­stru­men­tal mu­sic teacher An­drew Little said he and the stu­dents were thrilled with their win.

“The bi­en­nial state-wide fes­ti­val is for bands and or­ches­tras in Queens­land state schools, and we en­tered 27 stu­dents play­ing wood­wind, brass and per­cus­sion in­stru­ments,” Mr Little said.

The stu­dents from years four to six set high stan­dards as they im­pressed judges and guests.

The shining per­form­ing show­cased their tal­ents last week when Stu­art Gil­lard pre­sented the stu­dents with their tro­phy, 2016 North Coast Re­gion In­stru­men­tal Mu­sic Award for Best Pri­mary Con­cert Band Divi­sion 2, Bund­aberg Fraser Coast Sec­tor.

It show­cases the out­stand­ing mu­sic mak­ing that oc­curs in school en­sem­bles across the state.

The em­pha­sis for Fan­fare is on im­prov­ing the qual­ity of en­sem­bles, pro­mot­ing the high­est pos­si­ble stan­dard of per­for­mance, striv­ing for ex­cel­lence and en­cour­ag­ing par­tic­i­pa­tion.

Fan­fare pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for school to cel­e­brate young mu­si­cians and in­stru­men­tal teach­ers by en­cour­ag­ing and pro­mot­ing mu­si­cal ex­cel­lence.
