A number of College ensembles will perform with the AABK including the Stage 3 Band, the String Ensemble, the Senior Band, the Year 3 Violin program, the Year 4 Choir, the Worship Band, and many of our senior musicians and soloists. We also welcome back former student Hannah-Grace Spreitzer, for a special performance. Hannah-Grace achieved the first in state award for Music 1 in 2017. Director of Music Geoffrey Xeros is expecting an entertaining and enjoyable evening: “All our performers have been working very hard in preparation for their chance to perform with the Army Band. Our past concerts with Kapooka have been a great success and have had a palpable effect on the musical culture of the school. It is also a rare opportunity for our young musicians to play with a band of such high calibre.” The 2019 event will be the sixth combined AABK/WWCC concert and the impact on our students over several years is tangible. Graduating Year 12 student Ella Bergmeier has been involved in the concerts since they began. “I remember when I was younger it was really fun and it sounded so good. Being involved helped me enjoy playing with other people and brought the music to life. My passion for music has definitely been influenced by these concerts, which have been a great opportunity to learn from others.” Ella plans to pursue a career in music after a gap year working and continuing with her cello lessons; she will be performing at this year’s concert as well.
