Voices in harmony

More than 100 young voices joined together in harmony at Scotch Oakburn College on Thursday 1 November, as part of the third annual East Coast Music Program.

Students from Scotch Oakburn College, St Marys, Bicheno, St Helens and Fingal took part in the joyous occasion, following a visit on Wednesday 25 October to St Mary’s District High School.

Working alongside a team of music teachers from the schools involved and professional musicians, about fifty Scotch Oakburn College students from Years 5 and 6 took participated.

Musical items and a video montage were recorded on the day and the end results will be shared with the schools involved.

Music Teacher Mr Andrew Sulzberger said it was a fun day and the aim was for all the participants to enjoy themselves.

“They make new connections, and feel valued and empowered for their contributions,” he said. “Music builds bridges and connects people.”
