Term 3 has been a flurry of activity in the Performing Arts department.
Our school ensembles have been busy rehearsing and our College Concert Band performed at the Savio Assembly on Friday 17 August. The audience was impressed by the size the band has grown to and the impressive sound they are making as they performed "Raiders March" from Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Rehearsals for the College Band are held each Thursday at 1:15pm in the Music Centre. Thanks to Sarah Holden, Donna Cicero, and Brother Duc who assisted with the performance.
Arts Week was held from 20-24 August. The week was a fun celebration of the Arts at Salesian College. The week started with a speed painting competition, with students having 15 minutes to paint a picture on the theme of "The Elements". Congratulations to the winner Katharine Watson (pictured right). Thanks to our Arts Captains: Michaela Frantz, Janella Ramos, Ava Marshall, Bardyn McIntyre and Arden Pangallo for assisting with the organisation and planning of Arts Week.
Last week on Tuesday we held a "Just Dance" competition in the Ballroom, congratulations to the junior winners Ashleigh Macken, Christopha Maiuolo, and Alec McGregor, and senior winners, Izaac Chatfield, Tia Case, Rick Daicos, and Matthew Bruce.
Then on Wednesday, we held "Salesians Got Talent" in the Amphitheatre with a variety of acts including singing, tap dancing, guitar playing, and a clown singing and dancing to a rap song. Congratulations to our winners Mia and Chloe Papakalodoukas who sung a beautiful original composition and Aeddan Murer for his excellent guitar solo.
Finally, last Thursday, we had a drama improvisation workshop - with thanks to Rani Valenchi for organising this.
We also have a number of exciting performances this term. On 30 August, VCE Music students Ebony Carlin, Isaac McKenzie, and Finn Callinan performed at the Father’s Day Breakfast. And this week, we have VCE Music students performing in the College Mansion at 6pm on Tuesday 4 September (tonight), and VCE Dance students performing in the Ballroom at 6pm on Wednsday 5 September. On Thursday 7 September, there will be a music performance at the Bosco Assembly and on Friday 21 September, our College Band will perform at the whole school assembly.
This year we are putting together a Christmas play titled “Where is the Love”. If you love physical comedy, music, and a bit of fun, this is the perfect project for you!. Students can audition on Thursday and Friday (6 and 7 September) at 1:15pm in A104.
