The MAS Concert Band and Choir were out and about on Friday December 8, playing concerts at Yorketown Area School, Minlaton District School and Ardrossan Area School as part of their annual Yorke Music Tour.
Despite the tight time schedule, we played a full programme at each school, with both the band and choir performing well in the varied conditions.
The Concert Band performed selections from its 2013 programme as well as some Christmas favourites. Our vocal version of 'Little Talks' proved popular with all the schools.
The Choir dressed up to perform 'Socks and Jocks' and 'Stand Together', both from the 2013 Festival of Music programme. At AAS the choir was joined by the Ardrossan Festival Choir and the two groups sang together, in perfect harmony!
A big thank you to Nixon's buses for our transport, to Community members Malcolm Kinch, Di Morgan and Helen Stocking for your support, to the band members from the school's we visited and to the schools for helping us set the tour up. Thanks also to our roadie and DJ Jesse Lawler for organising the PA system.
Well done Mrs Schwartz for organising another opportunity for our students to demonstrate their musical skills to a wide and diverse audience.
