Thirteen of our students from Years 7 to 9 got up early on Wednesday 19 July and headed to the Melbourne Town Hall to participate in the first mass choir rehearsal for the Victorian State Schools Spectacular.
As one of the largest recurring productions in Australia, the Victorian State Schools Spectacular brings together more than 3000 school students performing as a 64-piece orchestra, 1300 voice choir, 1200 mass dancers, 30 lead vocalists, 16 principal dancers, 20 ensemble dancers, 8 backing vocalists, roller skaters and puppeteers and much more.
Participating students have the opportunity to work with industry professionals including Creative Director Neill Gladwin, Musical Director Chong Lim, Dance Director Deon Nuku, (Scooby Doo, Happy Feet, Moulin Rouge) and Associate Dancer Director Troy Phillips (King Kong the Musical, Moulin Rouge, Hairspray, The Boy from Oz).
Our students had a fantastic time at the rehearsal and are all looking forward to the final Victorian State Schools Spectacular performance in September.
