Congratulations to all the musicians who performed in the Lunchtime Concert at St George's Cathedral on Wednesday. Members of the public and John XXIII College community were treated to superb performances from the Barbershop, Senior Madrigal Singers, Senior String Quartet, Saxophone Ensemble, Clarinet Ensemble and selected soloists. Well done, everyone!

Music Camp is coming up on the first weekend of Term 3. This is a compulsory event for all students who are involved in the following ensembles: Concert Band, Wind Band, Chamber Choir, Treble Choir, Chamber Orchestra, Senior Guitar Ensemble and Swing Band.

Students will depart the College by bus at 8:30am on Friday 22 July and spend the weekend at New Norcia.

There will be a bus returning to the College (by 6:30pm) for students who cannot be picked up from New Norcia.
