The HSC Music students did their final practical exam on Tuesday 12 September. During this exam, they presented their performance pieces and viva voces to two HSC examiners. This was a big event as it was the culmination of many months of hard work. Kurtis Meier, Gabi Webster, Hannah Smith and Jade McNeice did wonderful work and should be commended for their performances. I’d like to thank Ms Sherelle Moore, Mr Stewart Row and Angus Lambert for adding instrumental accompaniment to some pieces. I’d also like to thank Liam Russell for his part in one of the theatre pieces, as well as Mr Michael Armstrong for all his work in helping with all things sound-related.
