The talents of Christ Church’s music scholarship holders were on show at the annual Scholars’ Recital, held in the Collaborative Learning Centre foyer, on Tuesday evening. Over 60 guests enjoyed the performances of the Years 7 to 12 boys in the intimate venue space.

Guests heard from nine of the School’s top music students, who performed solo pieces on violin, piano, cello, clarinet, saxophone, double bass and guitar as well as voice, with some playing two instruments.

Director of Music Kevin Gillam said the recital was a true showcase of musical talent and dedication. “It was a fantastic evening displaying the talents of our music scholarship students, each performing with aplomb,” Mr Gillam said. “The quality of our classical and jazz musicians is a credit to the depth of these styles within CCGS.”

Mr Gillam thanked Martin Lamb, Joe Grech and Paul Millard for their accompaniment work. He also thanked scholars’ parents for their support of young musicians and the boys for their continued dedication and commitment.

Two music scholarships are offered each year at Christ Church. These scholarships are awarded to boys who show outstanding ability, enthusiasm and commitment on one or more instruments and include music tuition for one instrument. The School also offers instrumental and choral bursaries to boys who are currently enrolled.
