Schools in har­mony

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Front Page - By SO­PHIE GABRIELLE

A MU­SI­CAL col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Christ Church Gram­mar School and Methodist Ladies’ Col­lege has stu­dents hit­ting all the right notes.

The two schools’ best mu­si­cians will per­form at a joint con­certo night at Hadley Hall on Septem­ber 11.

CCGS Year 12 stu­dent Henry Louden will play trom­bone at the con­certo and has been play­ing the in­stru­ment for seven years.

“It’s a ver­sa­tile in­stru­ment; you can play clas­si­cal and jazz,” Henry said.

“We’ve been per­form­ing with all of the other con­certo mu­si­cians through­out the year and it will be good to play con­certo with them (MLC).

“It’s re­ally good be­ing part of a full or­ches­tra with a mas­sive sound and they are re­ally good in­stru­men­tal­ists.”

MLC Year 11 stu­dent Ciara Sud­low, who is a vi­o­lin soloist, said she wanted to learn the vi­o­lin af­ter she watched a class­mate play.

“I re­ally love the piece I’m play­ing: the Dvo­rak Vi­o­lin Con­certo,” Ciara said.

“The most chal­leng­ing as­pect of it is prob­a­bly stick­ing with the or­ches­tra be­cause it’s quite a chal­leng­ing or­ches­tral part as well.”
