The seats were empty and the room was quiet as the annual HSC Recital Evening began last Thursday. Normally a packed house, this year due to health restrictions parents were prevented from attending the highly anticipated concert, a culmination of many years of hard work and practice from the music students.
But the show must go on, as they say, and the Year 12 students embraced the changed format without hesitation. The performances were streamed live from the school hall to the lounge rooms of many parents and members of the school community. Over 1000 people have viewed the online concert at the time of writing.
Head of Music Mr David Humphreys said that he was blown away at the quality of each student in this year’s HSC class and their performances on the livestream did not disappoint.
“It is a testament to the passion and dedication that they have shown throughout the last four years that they have been together. It has been a blessing to have worked with them over this time. I’ve been impressed by how they have spurred each other on to grow in the gifts that God has given them,” said Mr Humphreys.
The HSC music class now turns its attention to the HSC practical examinations next week, where students will perform their pieces for a panel of independent examiners.
