Students Strike a Chord at House Music Festival

Over 200 musical entries were submitted by Kindy to Year 11 CCGS students in this year’s House Music Festival. This whole school event allows students to submit a musical item of their choice and earn House points.

All entries were marked by professional adjudicators, and winners had the opportunity to perform their musical items in front of peers.

From percussion to vocals, piano, guitar, woodwinds, string instruments, and even the Chinese zither, students performed solo, in groups and with their music tutors in our Performing Arts Centre.
