06 Apr Band Camp
On Sunday March 26th, the Concert Band and Orchestra travelled off-site to Mangawhai Heads to undertake an intensive rehearsal camp.
Crammed into one afternoon and morning the groups rehearsed for five one-hour blocks, then performed items to one another. Mr Young and Mr Arthur commented that the dedicated time is really valuable at this early stage of the year, to start pushing past learning notes and get into the musical details of their repertoire.
Although most got wet on an untimely walk to the beach, all the students seemed to return with a smile on their face and a full stomach!
