Each year the Museum plays host to a variety of school bands, showcasing their talent and musicality through well known songs, from past and present. Over the last couple of weeks we have been fortunate enough to have some talented students come along and take to the stage on our Performance Platform, The Cashmere High School from New Zealand and the Pulteney Grammar School from South Australia.
Touring the east coast of Australia with a mixture of bands, The Cashmere School have their concert band, stage band, choir and orchestra in tow, showcasing varied songs to engage the crowds. Even though the sky was scattered with intermittent cloud it didn’t dampen the talent displayed by these students.
Years 10 to 12 from Pulteney Grammar School from South Australia, showcased their abilities, drumming and singing up a storm through their choir, percussionists and stage band against the spectacular backdrop of our submarine, HMAS Onslow. Despite the ominous clouds overhead and swirling winds casting their music sheets to the entertainment gods, the students and teachers performed a myriad of songs that the crowd enjoyed. Even though the gathering storm shortened the performance, we all still appreciated and enjoyed the day.
