KBB Music Festival

26 Aug KBB Music Festival

Our student musicians once again did the school proud at this year’s KBB Music Festival.

Chamber Orchestra – Bronze Award

The Chamber Orchestra put on a very solid performance and featured our Concert Master Martin Qiang, and Student Conductor Yong Chuah.

Jazz Band – Bronze Award

The score for this performance was 73/100 which is a big improvement on last year, only 2 points short of a silver award, but a fair reflection of their performance.

Concert Band – Gold Award

After gaining a Silver for the first time last year, our first ever Gold Award is a significant achievement and with a score of 91/100 shows huge growth over the last couple of years! This places us just outside the top 5 schools in Auckland.  The Concert Band delivered an outstanding program, with musical directors from other schools very quick to approach Hamish (Arthur) to commend him on the quality of their performance.  Angus Young, who was featured in one of the pieces, was also nominated for a soloist award by one of the adjudicators.

We were also represented in the Honours Orchestra performance on Friday evening by Martin Qiang, Vincent Xiao (violins) and Sue Lynn Leong (bassoon).

This is a combined ensemble of the very best orchestral musicians from across Auckland secondary schools.
