Last year the program was very successful, all involved enjoyed reaping the rewards of being involved in our music programs, from classroom to concert band!
The success of Lindy's program exploding in size and the benefit of music in the classroom was witnessed and appreciated. This year with the continued support from the Fairley Foundation, the Pratt Foundation and generous donations from Igniting change we were able to continue expanding the Heinz Music program in the Shepparton Region. Two new schools, Harston and Mooroopna North P.S now having classroom music at their schools each week and the 5/6s having the opportunity to learn an instrument and be part of the band program. Moving mountains we are, with Dhurringile P.S also joining the band program. Now over 160 grade 5/6 children are learning an instrument in weekly sessions and participating in concert band. It was a busy start to the year.
The children delighting audiences for the first time at the end on first term. What an amazing effort. Children from local primary schools such as Tatura, Mooroopna joining the Mooroopna Secondary School students to put on a wonderful evening of entertainment for our local community. This term we look forward to entertaining again with all the new band members performing on their own for their first concert at the end of May. We would love your support, the event is free and it gives our new students a real thrill to perform in front of an appreciative audience.
