Event description
Join us for our Creative Ensembles Showcase - our final music event of the year!

About this Event

We are proud to announce that the final Creative Ensembles Showcase for 2019 will shine a spotlight on female composers and their contribution to music throughout the decades. An initiative of our students, the focus of this showcase was proposed after students continued to encounter the gender imbalance that exists in the music we study and hear.

On the night, you will discover music composed by women ranging from an early sacred chant composed by Hildegard von Bingen, through to more recent artists like Sia and Amy Winehouse. The program will also include everything in-between; some well known artists such as Aretha Franklin and Carole King, and some music perhaps, you’ll be hearing for the first time.

By shining the light on these composers, we hope to raise awareness and encourage further exploration of not only the females, but all composers who lack fair representation.

We hope that you can join us to hear each of our directed ensembles: Percussion Ensembles, Vocal Collective, String Ensemble, and Jazz Band; as well as many student selected and arranged pieces. This Showcase will also be the final opportunity to hear some of the Yr 12 music students perform, so we invite you to share this night with us.

This performance takes place in the QACI Theatre, 61 Musk Avenue, Kelvin Grove at 6:30pm on Tuesday 22 October.

Tickets are free, however reservations are essential.
