Music Department

"Music can change the world because it can change people." - Bono

Welcome back to a very busy music term full of performances, festivals and workshops. Please make a note of the upcoming events as listed below as the boys work very hard in preparing their performances and really enjoy seeing as many audience members as possible for each event. Every event is FREE - apart from Jazz Night - and you can purchase tickets to this amazing event by going to the "book an event" on the Scotch College home page.

Please make a note of the new date for the annual Jazz Night - now to be held at the end of Week 3 Winter Term. To purchase tickets please go to the Scotch College website www.scotch.wa.edu.au and click on the 'Book a Scotch Event' icon.

Each of the events listed above are supported by FOSM. If you would like to join the Friends of Scotch Music (FOSM) - a group of parents who enthusiastically support the work of boys and staff in the Music Department, the process is very straight forward via the FOSM email below. 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. The next FOSM Meeting is to be held Monday, 28 July.
