Here we are, at the business end of what has been a wonderfully full year of Music at Sacred Heart!

Our VCE Music students have started their Performance Examinations (where a 20-minute performance accounts for 50% of their entire study score); our Year 11s are busily prepping for performance and written exams; our Year 10s are rehearsing incredibly hard for a major recital event, and our Year 7 & 8 students are all set to sit a Music theory test before launching into making a racket, playing their instruments!

We have a number of imminent events in store, starting with our Instrumental Music Recital Evening, next Wednesday evening (18 October). All students who learn an instrument will be performing in front of a very safe and supportive audience. The event starts at 7pm, and will take place in the following three venues:

  • CHAPEL – students of Mrs Helen Duggan, Ms Sarah Gill, Ms Sue Morris and Mr Henry Vyhnal
  • MUSIC CLASSROOM – Mr Tim Allan, Mr Andrew Rousch and Mr Mark Roberts
  • MARY MOLONEY THEATRE - Mr Adam Orlando, Mrs Anna Clarke and Miss Lizzie Dynon

I would also ask that parents diarise our Music Leaders’ Concert, which will start at 7pm on Thursday 2 November.

Applications are now open for students to apply for the 2024 Music Scholarships. This is open to all students studying at Sacred Heart in 2024, and all musicians are encouraged to apply. Applications are completed online at https://tinyurl.com/SHCmusicscholarship2024. Please note that applications for scholarships close on Thursday 19 October, 2023. No late entries will be accepted.

We are also accepting enrolments for the Instrumental Music Program in 2024. If you would like to apply, please do so online at https://tinyurl.com/shcmusic2024. Please note that all students currently enrolled to learn an instrument are required to have a parent/guardian re-enrol them for next year through this link.

I also warmly invite all members of the community to a FOMP (Friends Of the Music Program) Meeting at 7pm on Monday evening
16 October, where we will discuss how best to support the Music department through assisting with logistics of the upcoming events. New members are always very welcome!
