YEAR 8: MUSIC SCHOLARSHIP / BAND PROJECT GROUPS
Rebuildling Ensemble: Pastime Paradise
The Y8 band project scholars have been taking on more demanding technical playing through the set-work ‘Pastime Paradise’ arranged for the scholarship ensemble With a focus on independent practice, and a professional rehearsal approach, the scholars have been building mastery and ensemble in an even more complex way, leading their own rehearsals, playing individual parts and reading more challenging notes and rhythms. Their work is featured in the Festival of Light concerts and individually shared here.
