Bobby on song for show­case

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS - Jil­lian McKee

WALK­ING around the play­ground, it is easy to see that Bobby Harrison has some­thing spe­cial.

The Mt Druitt res­i­dent, who at­tends Ne­pean Cre­ative and Per­form­ing Arts High School, was praised by a dozen kids while The Stan­dard vis­ited on Mon­day — and for good rea­son.

Bobby, 15, has been se­lected from more than 500 stu­dents to be a fea­ture artist in the 2015 Schools Spec­tac­u­lar.

He will per­form Michael Bu­ble’s Come Dance With Me solo and play the trum­pet.

“I am feel­ing pretty ex­cited. I al­ways get ner­vous be­fore I per­form and then set­tle in. The adren­a­line of per­form­ing is an ex­pe­ri­ence you can’t get with any­thing else. It feels re­ally good,” Bobby said.

The per­former got in­volved in the arts at a young age.

“I was learn­ing the pi­ano at first, then I was in­tro­duced to trum­pet when I was six – I have loved it ever since,” he said.

The 2015 School Spec­tac­u­lar will be held at the Qan­tas Credit Union Arena on Novem­ber 27 and 28.
