Rowville Secondary College’s senior concert band won the gold award at the Victorian School Music Festival held at Federation Square’s Deakin Edge on Thursday.

The event showcased the best in intermediate and advanced concert bands from secondary schools across the state.

The College’s Bands & Instrumental Music Director Patrick Thomson couldn’t be prouder of the band (pictured right).

“The festival provides schools with an opportunity to perform alongside other schools from around Melbourne and (the senior concert band) received some wonderful feedback on their performance skills, professionalism and musicality,” Thomson said.

“Well done to everyone involved.”
