2018 Australian participating schools
Cannon Hill Anglican College
Cannon Hill Anglican College is a co-educational school situated on some of the oldest melaleuca wetlands in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. We have a thriving music program consisting of over 23 ensembles and choirs. Students are able to receive private music lessons by one of our 14 Specialist Music Tutors. We teach 400 private music lessons per week. CHAC, as we are affectionately known, also runs music theory classes each afternoon as well as music technology classes through our professional recording studio “Ghostgum Audio”. More than 40% of the college population participate in music each week.
For Rhapsody Rotorua we formed a “Scratch” orchestra, catering for students from years 9 to 12 across a wide range of instruments, including brass, woodwind, strings, percussion and a rock band. We have chosen contemporary repertoire to ensure we entertain our audiences. One of the highlights of our set is an arrangement of “Hanging Tree” from the Hunger Games, curated by New Zealand’s very own, Lorde.
