CSMF poster

2016 will mark the 28th Annual Catholic Schools Music Festival, with over 2000 students representing approximately 80 Catholic Schools who perform throughout the four evenings of the festival.

The music focus this year is both joyful and fun; creating a vibrant atmosphere with songs mainly selected from the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s.

Each evening of the Music Festival comprises a carefully crafted medley of our talented youth; encompassing a 400-voice Combined Schools Upper Primary Choir accompanied by a Secondary Girls Vocal Ensemble and a Secondary Boys Vocal Ensemble providing a rich baritone element. The arrangements of the choral songs involve soloists chosen by audition, and are complemented by selected secondary students in both the Festival String Ensemble and Festival Rhythm Section.

A variety of Support Acts selected by audition comprising solo, duet and ensemble items provide entertainment throughout the evening both on stage interspersed throughout the choral program and as foyer entertainment prior to the concert.

Week 7 Music with Mrs Rebeiro! R/1EC and R/1DT

Unknown

This week in music, the R/1 classes have been focusing on pitch. The students sang the song “The Wheels on the Bus” and learnt all of the actions ready to put it together with the song.

As you can see, R/1EC and R/1DT had lots of fun singing and doing all of the actions in time with the music. The challenge was to put all of the lyrics together with the correct action at the end of the song!

Week 3 Music with Mrs Rebeiro! 2RG and 2MP

Mime to Music…

Music often makes us think and feel different things, so the year 2’s began thinking about what animals they could mime to different piano music. Students thought about musical elements such as high, low, fast, slow, loud and soft and how these could relate to different animals. Below are some photos of the students miming to the music… How many different animals can you see?

The students also used Chime Bars and Glockenspiels to continue their learning about pitch.  Students learnt all the verses to ‘A Sailor went to Sea Sea Sea’ and played the song on the instruments. Students rotated and shared the instruments so that everyone could have a go!

Week 2 Music with Mrs Rebeiro! 3/4EH and 3/4CM

This week in Music, 3/4EH and 3/4CM began learning the difference between a melody and a bass line. The students used Glockenspiels and Xylophones to explore both of these concepts and were able to share their learning with the class. Students had a go at playing a simple melody using the notes C,E,G over a bass line. Here are some of the students from 3/4EH and 3/4CM taking it in turns to give it a go!
