Generations in Jazz 2018

From Friday 4 May to Sunday 6 May, students in the Stage Band, Jazz Combo, Pegasus Singers and Pegatonix Vocal Group travelled to the annual Generations in Jazz festival held near Mt Gambier in South Australia.

This year, more than 5100 students from across Australia participated in a fabulous weekend of music, starting with a Welcome Concert on Friday evening, where the legendary American jazz vocalist Patti Austin performed together with the amazing Australian jazz trumpeter James Morrison.

All groups were involved in competitions and listening to other school groups on Saturday, and at the Gala Concert that evening, we were blown away with a stunning performance from The Cat Empire that literally had the students dancing in the aisles.

On Sunday morning we were treated to some workshops on the different instruments led by the guest artists and adjudicators, followed by the Final Concert.

Congratulations to our students for their great performances during the festival and for their hard work in the rehearsals during Terms 1 and 2. We are looking forward to returning to Generations in Jazz again next year.
