Another magical Music on the Mount!
Congratulations to all the young performers and composers involved in last Saturday’s Music on the Mount at Buninyong Primary School! We had such a magical evening performing with you all.
There were many special highlights of the evening, including the premiere performances of no less than 17 new compositions by students of the Maestro & Me composition program, run by NPCO Artistic Director Gemma Turvey. These were songs for piano, guitar and voice by students from Grades 3 – 6, accompanied on the night by musicians from the NPCO. Everyone performed exceptionally well, and brought both tears and smiles to the audience faces!
We are thrilled to say the evening raised more than $4,000 to support the school’s music program which includes several scholarships for instrumental music lessons, as well as future Music on the Mount and Maestro & Me initiatives.
A big thank you to everyone involved behind the scenes to ensure the third Music on the Mount was such a success, including major sponsor Buninyong & District Community Bank. We are so very proud of everyone who took part, and look forward to seeing you all again next year!
