After a two-year, covid-enforced hiatus, Blackfriars’ annual Music Concert returns to Woodville Town Hall.
Head of Performing Arts Lucy Pope was thrilled to be able to again present the musical showcase to a live audience.
“It was great to be able to pivot and present the concerts online for the past two years, but nothing beats a live audience,” Ms Pope says.
“I’m looking forward to a fantastic night, showcasing the wide talents of our music students.”
Students from Years 3-12 will be involved in the night, which will include performances by Blackfriars’ concert bands, stage bands, instrumental ensembles and vocal groups.
Music Captain Dan Heath says the concert is one of the biggest nights on the school’s annual music calendar.
“There is nothing like playing in front of a crowd,” says Dan, who has been involved in the music program at Blackfriars since he arrived at the school in Year 8.
The concert will cap off a busy period for Blackfriars’ Music Department, coming off the back of performances at the ABODA 2022 SA School Band and Orchestra Festival and several school-based commitments, such as the Laureate Assembly.
The Years 5/6/7 choir will also be part of the Catholic Schools Music Festival in late September, as will a number of support acts from Blackfriars, including Big Band Theory and soloist Reuben Calleja.
Blackfriars’ Music Concert, Thursday, 8 September, 7pm-10pm, Woodville Town Hall. Tickets available here. Drinks will be available to buy on the night.
