Music Department

"Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue." Plato

On Saturday night, the Scotch College playing fields were transformed into a perfect evening of Symphonic music performed by the Perth Symphony Orchestra together with Scotch College musicians. A full review of this event will be published in the next edition of the Thistle. Hopefully you were able to attend this fantastic event. If you have any comments about Symphony by the Lake, I would love to hear from you via email, dgcoughlan@scotch.wa.edu.au

On Friday, 21 March, the Friends of Scotch Music (FOSM) are hosting a Quiz Night for all Musicians in Years 8 - 12. PLC music students are also invited and all music students have received an invitation with consent form information. I encourage all music boys in Years 8 - 12 to submit their form as this helps plan the amazing prizes that will be won on the night.

Friends of Scotch Music (FOSM) is a group of parents who enthusiastically support the work of boys and staff in the Music Department. FOSM meets once or twice each term with all meetings beginning at 7.00pm. Meetings go for approximately one hour, and are held in the Senior School Music Room with everyone welcome. Please consider becoming involved in the FOSM Parent Support group as an excellent way to support your son and the Music Programme at Scotch College.

Other upcoming musical events organized for the term including the following:
