(One of our pieces for the Remembrance Concert)

"Ashokan Farewell" is a piece of music composed by Jay Ungar in 1982.

 It has served as a goodnight or farewell waltz at the annual Ashokan Fiddle & Dance Camps run by Ungar and his wife Molly Mason, who gave the tune its name, at the Ashokan Field Campus of SUNY New Paltz (now the Ashokan Center) in upstate New York

The tune was later used as the title theme of the 1990 PBS television miniseries The Civil War, as well as the 1991 compilation album Songs of the Civil War.

Ashokan was the name of a Catskill Region village that is now mostly covered by the Ashokan Reservoir.

Eisteddfod Alert!

Well, Liam went one better.

Last night, Liam Pratt scored an astonishing 99 marks for his Beethoven performance in the 16-18 years own choice  at the piano. 

This young man simply owns the piano, it is a joy to see him play.  


Cogratulations from Orpheus 
to Liam and all our fine young musicians.

The Eisteddfod is still happening. 

And today, our young Bundy musicians excelled.

Deidre Rickards, OAM, the adjudicator, 
wondered why the whole of Bundaberg was not present to hear the music, 
so high was the standard. 

Michalina Konopka, 
in winning the 13-15 years age group section, 
playing Meditation from Thais on violin, 
scored a whopping 98!!!!!    

The lowest score in the section was 90.

These kids are magnificent. 
And so are their mums and dads.
So are their teachers.

Go Bundy Music!!!
