Seacliff at the Festival of Music
What a night it was, “Stars in the Arena” celebrating 130 years of the Primary Schools Music Festival at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre.
On the evening of Wednesday 8th September, our Seacliff Primary School choir performed alongside students from all across our state.
Our school was also represented by Year 5 student, Ashley Blake, who performed as part of the orchestra.
The Primary Schools Festival of Music is the custodian of an iconic South Australian tradition. This opportunity engages our students in artistic excellence, cultural diversity and social inclusion through performance in Music and the Arts.
The commissioned work was entitled ‘Water is Life’ which was a series of songs composed by local musician, Glyn Lehman. Glyn sang in the festival himself nearly 50 years ago. The concert ended with a spectacular sea of colour.
During the concerts there were a number of Guest Artists from public primary and secondary schools, other choir items that presented different musical genre, and two pieces that specifically showcased the talents of the orchestra. All of our choir students have invested many hours throughout the year to learn and practice a range of songs, choreography as well as AUSLAN signs. They have worked very hard to deliver an energetic and vibrant performance to an audience of hundreds. We are truly proud of their achievement!
