Haileybury in Concert
Over 300 students performed in the Melbourne Recital Centre for Haileybury in Concert. After the very successful inaugural 2015 Haileybury in Concert, we returned to one of the finest live music venues in the world for this Whole School event featuring talented musicians from across the School.
The program provided an aural feast of music from many genres and styles, historical periods and languages. The ensembles included: Symphony Orchestra, String Orchestra, Wind Symphony, Stage Band, Brass Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble, Guitar Orchestra, Magenta Choir and Haileybury Singers.
We were pleased to have many past students involved including Joseph McDonald (2015) as compere and seven former music students performing in various ensembles.
The finale – Sogno di Volare performed by Symphony Orchestra, Magenta Choir and Haileybury Singers – was a true highlight and definitely worthy of the standing ovation it received.
