Rowville Secondary College’s music ensembles performed at Stud Park Shopping Centre and Peppertree Hill Retirement Village last weekend.

“Weekend shoppers at Stud Park Shopping Centre were treated to a range of wonderful performances on Saturday, 3rd September,” Bands and Instrumental Music Director Patrick Thomson said.

In what has grown to become a community favourite now in its second year, the shopping centre performance showcased the College’s high standard of talent in the music program, according to Thomson

“The entertainment included performances from the school’s choir, concert bands, stage bands, and string group,” he said.

“This is the second year that the event has run and many onlookers were extremely impressed by the talent of the students and the high standard of each ensemble.”

Three VCAL music students spearheaded the Peppertree Hill performance for the choir and string group, followed by a morning tea, which Thomson says galavnised the local community.

“It is days like this that bring the local community together and many of the audience members at both events remarked at how wonderful it is that young people today have the opportunity to be involved in community events and to show pride in their school.

“Well done to everyone involved.”
