On Saturday 23 July eleven Gymea vocal students joined others from Jacqui Alexander’s Singing Studio for the Shine Midyear Concert, held at Sutherland Presbyterian Hall. A large audience of parents and friends listened intently to 23 items from the popular music repertoire presented by the group in a 90-minute program. Gymea students involved were Hannah Challinor, Adara Manos and Katherine Patrizi (Year 10), Jordan Nicholls and Elizabeth Tuckwell (Year 9) and Madeline Bulmer, Claudia Coussens, Kerehi Matafeo, Arabelle Popple, Layla Scott and Daisy van Gaalen (Year 7).
Our congratulations are extended to Dr Hastie and our students for their hard work and preparation during the term and for their confident and stylistic performance of works at the concert. Special thanks go to our vocal tutor, Jacqui Alexander, for organising the event and to her husband, Nigel Eke, for his photography.
