Jazz Season Is Upon Us!

Jazz season is well and truly upon us, and for the many young musicians involved in the upcoming Night of Jazz, rehearsals and home practice have kicked into high gear. It is particularly wonderful to see the commitment and initiative displayed by our ensemble leaders in organising student led sectional rehearsals at lunchtimes.

Similarly, it has been enriching to start the term with preparations for the St Catherine’s Day Eucharist which will involve seventy-five members of the College choir groups and the Eucharist band. The energy brought to rehearsals by our youngest voices in Year 7 has been especially rewarding.

As always, the Music Department appreciates the support and encouragement shown to our young musicians by their parents and families. As we approach International Arts Education Week (20 to 26 May), I am reminded of how fortunate our students are to be part of a learning community which embraces the Arts, recognises the lifelong value of creative and critical thinking, collaboration and courage - skills and values we see demonstrated each day in our tuition rooms and rehearsal spaces.

Siena’s Night of Jazz

We welcome all members of the Siena College community to join us for Night of Jazz at Box Hill Town Hall on Wednesday, 15 May!

Night of Jazz celebrates the achievements of our jazz ensembles and many senior musicians, and features an exciting program of special collaborations, group and solo items. We are honoured to be joined by Australian saxophone legend, Julien Wilson who will be appearing with our student soloists, working with them in rehearsal to share his experience and inspire their best performances.

Families are encouraged to book quickly to avoid missing out as this is one of our most popular events. Tickets are available via this link.
