THE music teachers of Douglas Shire held a combined concert for their students at the Clink Theatre this weekend. The audience was treated to polished performances from the Mossman High School String Ensemble conducted by their director Jenny Guyatt. Alteouise DeVaughn’s vocal students presented a varied vocal programme ranging from Italian art songs to musical theatre numbers. Students from the instrumental music teaching studios of Jenny Guyatt, Lynda Irvine, Rose Marie Santarossa and Joanne Trewick gave polished performances on many different instruments, piano, guitar, flute, trumpet and violin including a number of wonderful duets. A wonderful night was had by all with thanks going to Idris Alkamraikhi for being a delightful MC and to Michael Kerr and the Clink Theatre for their continuing support.
