On Monday 16 September students from Year 2 to Year 6 participated in Red Hill's performance at Floriade. We had a busy line up with seven ensembles performing. We opened our set with Wassa Wassa our West African drumming ensemble who performed two traditional Guinean rhythms. The Junior Choir made up of students from Year 2 and 3 boogied their way through their set singing a number of songs including Funky Town. The Senior Choir made of students from Year 4-6 performed three songs to their adoring Red Hill fans (and larger audience) as the rain began to fall. The Year 5 band was up next playing three of their favourite pieces including the 'Hey Song!' where they played instruments and yelled out Hey! The Year 6 band performed their favourite piece, 'Pirates of the Caribbean' to a rousing applause by parents and peers in the audience. Last up were Petit Wassa Wassa and Wassa Wassa Junior. Petit Wassa Wassa (our year 4 drumming ensemble) performed two rhythms and were accompanied by a dancer. Wassa Wassa Junior (year 5 drummers) brought our performance to its conclusion with two different West African rhythms.
Despite the rain parents, students and teachers alike had a fantastic day! This performance signalled the end of a busy term with our ensembles already having performed at numerous events including assemblies, bandfest, and our Musical Spectacular just last week.
The school was also featured on 'The Musical Offering' website on the performers page. There are some photos of the event. The Musical Offering project aims to have music in Canberra every day of 2013.
