Singing the key to teaching school children music, expert says

The expert is none other than Richard Gill.  

"Award-winning conductor Richard Gill is credited with being the driving force behind the National Music Teachers Mentorship Pilot Programme, announced today by the Federal Government."

Zoltan Kodaly had pioneered the teaching of music to children in a method based on awareness of the child's developmental sequence, back in the first half of the C20th.  But also with an emphasis on the voice - the musical instrument we all have.

Bundaberg Symphony Orchestra celebrates 25 years. 

Hearty Congratulations to Bundaberg Symphony Orchestra from Bundaberg Orpheus Singers. 

Today's Tea and Symphony concert to mark the Orchestra's Silver Jubilee was  enjoyed by a large and enthusiastic audience at Shalom's Performing Arts Precinct.  

Resident conductor Fred Coleman took the rostrum in the first half, and then, after tea and scones, we were treated to  guest appearances of former conductors, Gary Matherson, Rosalee Morris and, to great acclaim from all, the Orchestra's Founding Conductor, Heather McCabe O.A.M.

Today, at the Lighthouse Festival, Poco savvi voce sang their hearts out with big smiles on their faces, even though it was pretty hot there in the tent.   Robyn out the front, and the Legendary Lois at the keyboard.  It was a delight to watch, and the audience definitely thought so. Go PSV!!!!

Savvi voce also thrilled with their own very distinctive sound - they have a really classy vocal blend going.  


Earlier in the day, Claudia and Liam sang the National Anthems of Australia and other Pacific Rim Nations at the Flag Raising Ceremony during the opening of the Lions' Convention in the Moncrieff Centre.  Even the Naval Cadets (who themselves carried the flags very professionally) congratulated them on a job well done.
