Perfect performance for Jazz

Perfect performance for Jazz

The engaging performance involved boys of all ages.

There was no better place to be on Sunday afternoon than at Jazz on the Swan, as CBC's talented musicians entertained the crowd with tunes with a view.

The concert began with the Jazz Orchestra, which was complemented by talented vocalists Tim McClelland (Year 10) and Andrew Armstrong (Year 12) with their wonderful renditions of some jazz classics.

Next up in the programme was the Senior Guitar Ensemble, who put a unique twist on some crowd favourites.

The Junior Band displayed a mature grasp of the basics of jazz, with Year 7 boys being particularly impressive on stage, as were the Year 7 to 9 boys who make up the Junior Guitar Ensemble.

The Big Band rounded out the evening, passionately performing some familiar tunes and really getting those toes tapping.

Performances like Jazz on the Swan are important not only to build confidence for Music students, but also because the event raises funds that subsidise the cost of many activities and tours in the Music programme.

A special thank you to the Music Parents Group, who helped organise and facilitate this wonderful event, and to the community who assist with the fundraising.
