Music Notes

GPS Music Showcase 2018, Thursday February 22, 6.00pm, QPAC

Join us for what promises to be an unforgettable evening of truly exceptional music!

GPS reaches its centenary this year, providing a special opportunity to celebrate 100 years of the GPS spirit of fellowship. The GPS Centenary Music Showcase is a day of music making culminating in performances by students from all nine GPS schools in choir, symphony orchestra and concert band ensemble. The Centenary Showcase Concert will feature the hugely popular work, Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, performed by a massed choir of 300 voices and an orchestra of 100 players, conducted by Maestro Andrew Mogrelia in the Concert Hall of the wonderful Queensland Performing Arts Centre.

We have a number of TSS musicians who will perform in this amazing musical experience and they would really appreciate your patronage at the concert. Tickets are free and available online here:

Concerto Competition 2018

An exciting performance opportunity is being offered to the musicians at TSS in 2018.

A concerto competition will be conducted over two rounds (round two will be the finale) to enable students to enhance their solo performance skills and be recognised in their pursuit of musical excellence. Both the rounds will be adjudicated by independent professional musicians.

Concertos were originally developed as works that could highlight the musical prowess of a performer or demonstrate the qualities of a particular instrument. The music was generally reserved for the ‘virtuosos’ or the master performers, so I encourage all TSS musicians who would like to develop their solo performance skills to consider entering the competition.

Round 1 will take place Thursday, March 22

Final will take place Thursday, August 16

Entry forms and further information is available in the Senior Music Office. Entries close Monday March 5

Music Ensembles

All music ensembles have started rehearsing this week. If your son is taking music lessons and not part of a music ensemble, please ask them to see members of the music staff so a place can be found in a group. There is a music making opportunity for all TSS musicians!
