Santa Sabina hosted the Limelight Australian Music Day on Sunday 26 July. The College was alive with performances from four new commissioned works by young Australian composers as well as student compositions from many schools around Sydney and as far away as Cairns.
The event was led by Richard Gill Australia’s foremost music educator. Students participating in the workshop submitted written compositions that were performed by the Acacia Quartet and Ensemble Offspring. Participants were privileged to hear their work performed by these outstanding ensembles and receive feedback from the musicians and Richard Gill.
This experience for students and teachers was education at its highest level. The collaboration of professional partners enabled all who attended to have a very positive learning experience and the realisation that we can create wonderful things with a carefully inspired scaffolded process.
