On Wednesday 31 July, the Tintern Grammar Concert Band had the privilege to perform at the Victorian Schools Musical Festival (VSMF) in the Hawthorn Arts Centre. The Concert Band rehearsed tirelessly every Wednesday morning in preparation for this performance. We performed two pieces which included ‘Autumn Rains’ by Patrick Roszell and Robert Sheldon’s ‘Cataclysm’. We were very pleased to receive a Silver Award. Following our performance, the VSMF chief adjudicator worked alongside our band, providing valuable insights, with a focus on extending our dynamic range and the flow of phrasing of our performance pieces. Well done to the Concert Band and a big thank you to Mrs Clarke for her dedication and hard work in leading the Band.
