Music Matters

Diana Springford – Head of Music

  • I was so impressed with all the students who performed so beautifully in Wednesday’s Twilight Concerts. They were held in the Music department, run by Danny Burley who ably rehearsed and accompanied many of the students, and supported by our proud music tutor team and their parents. It was a lovely, appreciated event and students are commended for their preparation and for sharing their music with us. There were an amazing variety of instrument, voices and genres! Please enjoy the many photos below, generously taken by our parent and photographer, Ofer Levy.
  • The Senior Choir, conducted by Danny Burley and accompanied by Steven Kramer, and the Emanuel Big Band, rehearsed by Mr Eamon Penner-Dilworth and conducted by Marty Farrugia, performed with great style and finesse at the Madrichim Induction Ceremony on Tuesday in Week 3. Here are videos of the Big Band performance and the Choir performance.
  • Ben Cohen performed I’ll Bid My Heart be Still by Rebecca Clarke at our High School Assembly in Week 2. This was a performance of style and sensitivity which he will revisit for his HSC performances later this term.

Save the date!
