Students at MAS have access to the Festival Choir in years 5-7.
The Festival Choir is run by IMS Music teacher Deb Schwartz. The choir learns the repertoire of the Adelaide Festival of Music and selected students perform at the Adelaide Festival Centre.
Our annual Christmas Assembly drew a record crowd of parents and families who gathered on Wednesday December 11 in the PAC to celebrate the end of the year with the R-7 students.
With nearly thirty items on the programme, the afternoon was packed with singing, dancing (well done Miss Norman!), jokes, plays, student-videos, music performances, the 5/6 Band and the Festival Choir.
Father Christmas made an appearance, courtesy of the local police and helped us present the Classroom Christmas Door competition.
Thank you to all the families who attended and supported their children, thanks to the PA crew for coping with a technically difficult programme and thanks to Debbie Schwartz for her support and help throughout the day.
Tuesday September 11 was show night at the Adelaide Festival Centre for our Festival Choir.
Over a magic two hours, the choir, along with 300 students from 24 different schools, entertained an appreciative audience with music, dance and drama, demonstrating once again the talents of our students and their teachers.
On Tuesday the 21st of August 24 students from years 5-7 attended the Festival of Music Choir rehearsal at Magic Millions, Adelaide. It was an early start to the day with students meeting in the bus bay at 6:15am but this didn’t stop our MAS students from shining on the day!
Each member of the choir had to wear a bright coloured t-shirt with black pants and black shoes. The coloured shirts looked amazing on stage. Congratulations to Ionah Warrior who was chosen to perform a solo. Ionah performed the Spoken Rap of ‘Gundalla -We Dance’; she spoke the ‘Wongatha language’ confidently and beautifully and made all Maitland Audience members very proud. Well Done Ionah!
Thank You to all the Parents who took the time to take the students down to Adelaide for this amazing event. A huge Thank You would have to go to our wonderful choir trainer Belinda Wundersitz who takes the time each week to come in and rehearse the choir. She makes it so enjoyable to be in. Many thanks to Mrs Hector for supporting and managing the choir. She does this so well and it is great to have her involved.
Well done everyone who has been involved in this fun event and I encourage next year’s Year 5, 6 and 7s to join in the Festival of Music program.
