The Performing Arts Department have been extremely busy once again this term particularly with Senior drama and music showcases and of course the VCE Performance exams in both Drama and Music which were held across the 13th and 14th October. We wish all of our departing students the very best in their upcoming written exams and their performance pursuits beyond Damascus.
We have a number of music performance evenings scheduled before the end of the year which involve quite a number of students and which are open to all of the Damascus Community
YEAR 10 / 11 MUSIC RECITAL NIGHT - THURSDAY 3RD NOVEMBER SUTTONS HOUSE OF MUSIC 7.30pm
(Please call 5333 4393 if you would like to reserve a table for a meal on this evening) Free admission
SINGING AND SPEECH / DRAMA RECITAL - TUESDAY 15TH NOVEMBER Valda Ward Auditorium 7pm
PIANO /DRUMS / GUITAR RECITAL - WEDNESDAY 23RD NOVEMBER Valda Ward Auditorium 7pm
These recitals feature students who are currently enrolled in the Damascus College Instrumental Music Program. The program is now recruiting for 2017. A slightly different approach is being undertaken this year in that we are asking for Expressions of Interest for students wishing to learn the following instruments – flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, violin, viola, cello, electric/acoustic guitar, bass guitar, piano, speech and drama, voice, drums / percussion, music theory. Students will then be offered a place in the program depending on enrolment numbers and tutor availability.
If your son / daughter is interested in learning an instrument in 2017 please read the attached brochure (below) and return the Expression of Interest form on the back no later the FRIDAY 4TH NOVEMBER to the Front Office. Please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Maria Russell, Performing Arts Coordinator – Music at the school if you have any further queries.
