THERE was not an empty seat in the house for Great Southern Grammar’s Kingfisher Concert at the Albany Entertainment Centre last week, with more than 200 students showcasing their musical talents and dedication at the annual gala performance.

Students aged five to 18 years performed using a variety of instruments and vocals to provide an evening of entertainment for all.

Principal Mark Sawle was proud of his students’ efforts.

“The 2017 Kingfisher Concert was a sell-out success,” Mr Sawle said.

“The concert was a celebration of student achievement, rewarding their hard work and commitment to music, of which I am very proud.

“What is so rewarding is seeing the very young and the graduating students working together on items; it is a mutual learning and performance collaboration in the true sense.”

Great Southern Grammar’s own Suzuki Stars and Tiny Trebles performed, along with students playing hit songs from Beauty and the Beast, Into the Woods, New Orleans and Bach.

“The concert also showcased to the general community the breadth of the entire GSG music program; classical and contemporary, jazz and pipes,” Mr Sawle said.
