ACCent on Music Concert

Following a successful inaugural concert in 2008, Associated Catholic Colleges is proud to announce that we will return to Hamer Hall in September this year for our second combined schools concert, “ACCent on Music”.

This music spectacular will feature the individual and collective musical talents of the eleven ACC member schools, as well as the legendary genius of one of Australia’s pre-eminent musicians, Mr James Morrison. We are delighted that James has made himself available to perform with a selection of our ensembles, and he will also act as compare on the night. He is a strong supporter of music education and we look forward to welcoming him to our event.

The aim of this concert is to provide an opportunity to showcase the variety and excellence of music programs within the ACC to our school communities and to the general public. It also provides our musicians and singers a potentially once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of performing high calibre works in a world-class concert hall.

A wide variety of musicians and vocalists will be involved in this performance in a number of ways:

  • Several combined school items — Choir, Senior Concert Band, Junior Concert Band, Advanced Stage Band and Orchestra
  • Individual School items – each school will have an ensemble perform on the Hamer Hall stage, as well as several ensembles performing in the various foyers leading up to the event.

Rehearsals for the massed items will be delivered within the scope of the usual ACC Music Workshop program to be held throughout 2014, as well as within the normal rehearsal program of each contributing school. The directors of music from our member colleges have been working hard in preparation for the concert, and will be working collaboratively to ensure that the concert is a great success.

We ask the support of all students and families in attending the concert, which is to be held at Hamer Hall, Arts Centre Melbourne on Wednesday 17 September. Tickets are $15 and will be available through the College. Further information is available to download — Accent on Music Concert Letter.

This event promises to be a memorable experience for performers and audience members alike.

A DVD compilation of the concert will be produced, which will provide all involved with the event a wonderful momento of their participation. Each copy of the DVD will cost $20.
