Music Department


Since the last Thistle edition was published, the Scotch College musicians have been extremely busy. Senior boys performed in a Jazz Combo for the Cottesloe Street Festival " Hullabaloo "

and again outside the new Middle School building prior to the official opening. Junior and Middle School boys performed in their End of Year Concert in the Memorial Hall, String players performed at a String Soiree and the Combined Middle School Ensemble comprising singers, string players, guitars, keyboard and percussion performance magnificently at the ceremonial opening of the new Middle School building. All boys worked very hard to rise to their various performance opportunities and everyone can be very proud of their efforts.

The 2014 Music Handbook has been created and it can also be accessed via the Music Department online wiki. As current enrolments do not carry over into 2014, I strongly encourage all boys who are considering instrumental lessons at Scotch College next year, to complete the appropriate enrolment form by the end of November and submit to Music Administration via email music@scotch.wa.edu.au

Finally, if you are interested in supporting the work of the boys and teachers involved in Music at Scotch College, I encourage you to say hello to the Friends of Scotch Music support group via email FOSM@scotch.wa.edu.au This parent group meets once or twice a term to organize the supper and front of house areas in preparation for concerts. A very important group of parents who have supported music at Scotch for many years.
