Corpus Music Concerts

Thank you to Mrs Alexander and the members of the Orana Guitar Ensemble on your first public performance this year at the Semester One Classical Guitar Concert at Corpus Christi College on Saturday 27 June. Also thank you to the nine students who performed at The Corpus Music Concert Night on Tuesday 30 June. It is great to be able to showcase what the Orana students are achieving. A big thank you also to our very supportive music parents in getting the students to these evening and weekend performances.

All students should have received their Performing Arts Festival dates and times. Parents are responsible for arranging to get students to solo and duet performances. The school will organise ensemble, band and choir transportation.

Venue entry to all events is $4.00 per adult. If you have a number of events to attend it may be worth purchasing a season pass that will get you into all 2015 PAF events for $12.00. (Excluding Perth Convention centre and the Perth Concert Hall.)
