Rockhampton Girls Grammar: Music and Arts Department report

Updated: Jan 4

Girls Rock

Well, it’s all over!

Girls Rock 2022 was a huge success! It was a great production which showcased a huge number of acts from music to drama to dance and students across the school from Prep – Year 12.

The student-led hip hop crew, choreographed by Claudia, opened the show with a polished, exciting performance. This set the tone for the wonderful event.

The support from the audience emanated through onstage and behind the scenes. As a new staff member, it was so special for me to see the amazing energy of both performers and audience on the night.

The Primary School was well represented with class acts, along with solos by Emily and Arsha. How great to see the fun the girls were having on stage, as well as some fun teacher cameos throughout!

Groups such as Bella Voce, Concert Band, Senior Music class, Dance Company and Young Playwrights Club all made lasting impressions with their performances during the event.

Even our Show Team, supported on stage by Mrs McBride, brought their A game!

It was also excellent to see so many talented girls who showcased their skills in music, dance and drama in solos or small groups.

A huge congratulations to those who performed on the night. It was amazing to see all of you shine on stage.

A special mention also to all staff members who participated in the Staff Act this year.

A big thank you for giving up your afternoons for rehearsals throughout the last few months.

It was amazing to watch the polished performance (thanks Mr Cook), and so wonderful to see the reaction from the crowd!

A particular highlight was the celebration and final Girls Rock performance by the Year 12 cohort. Another big shoutout to Head Girls of 2022, Nylah and Allysah, who were outstanding hosts for the evening.

Congratulations to all involved on an enjoyable show.

Musical announcement for 2023

Something many students were looking forward to was the musical announcement for 2023.

After a convincing 'almost' announcement at the end of act one, I was joined on stage by Ms Dawes and Miss Harwood to reveal the long-awaited truth.

The 2023 school musical will be 'Anastasia', performed at McKeague Hall.

Congratulations to Girls Grammar piano students Sissy, Eve and Tiffany for taking up the 40 piece Challenge and achieving their goal this year.

Each year Miss Bond challenges her piano students to learn forty piano pieces throughout the year.

Eve and Tiffany achieved their forty pieces and Sissy has reached fifty pieces by the end of Term 4.

Well done on your dedication to your piano learning this year Eve, Tiffany and Sissy.

Congratulations to the Bella Voce ensemble for their recent performance at the St Cecilia ensemble examinations.

The girls performed beautifully for the audience and examiner.

The examiner commented on the “excellent tone and balance” and voice blend with a final remark of an “enjoyable and entertaining performance”.

Bella Voce was awarded 100% Higher Distinction for their Grade 5 Choral exam which is a reflection of the hard work and dedication from the group.

Bella Voce director Christina Bond would like to thank each of the eight students for their participation and commitment to the ensemble this year.

Another big congratulations to the Molti Voce Choir for achieving 94% on their exam, the Concert Band for their 82%, String Ensemble for their 88% and Year 6 Strings for their 82%. It was a very successful day for all music students involved and we look forward to the St. Cecilia exams next year.

On 11 November Molti Voce choir sang the Australian National Anthem for the opening of the Ariat APRA National Rodeo finals in Gracemere.
