Students experience the best of HSC performances

Recently Maclean High music students made the 10 hour train journey to Sydney for the annual “Encore” music excursion.

“Encore’ is a showcase of the best performances and compositions from last year’s HSC cohort, performed in the stunning concert hall of the Sydney Opera House. Students were able to witness top calibre student performances from many genres, on many different instruments, and also gain insight into what it takes to achieve the top results in HSC Music.

During their time in Sydney, the students visited Darling Harbour and the Hard Rock Café and took in a live show at the historic Capitol Theatre – for some students this was their first time to a professional theatre show.

A highlight for the students was a visit to “Studio 301” at Mascot for a tour of the largest audio recording facility in the southern hemisphere. This is where many of the world’s greatest musicians come to record or be mastered.

Mr Fisher and Mrs Bowie were very impressed by the group of 16 students who were great representatives of Maclean High School and displayed all of our F.R.E.S.H. values throughout the three days.
