In order to maximise the opportunities for our students to perform quality repertoire in a large ensemble setting, a decision has been made to merge the Wind Symphony and Big Band ensembles for 2018 and form a new ensemble: the Kingscliff High School Concert Orchestra.
The Concert Orchestra is available to all Woodwind, Brass, Strings, Percussion, Piano and Guitar students and will rehearse/perform works from both the symphonic and jazz/popular repertoire, as well as newer works and those that make use of digital media.
It is expected that the Concert Orchestra will provide the meaningful performance opportunities previously provided by the Wind Symphony and Big Band and enable students to gain the musical competency and flexibility, as well as technological familiarity, needed for 21st century musicians.
The Concert Orchestra rehearses on Thursdays 3:30-5:30pm in the Music Block under the direction of Mr Jeffrey Reid. Further information can be found on the Curriculum page of our website.
