Big Band Sunsets 2017

Welcoming new members to the band, the Senior Stage Band kicked off 2017 with a stellar performance at the Big Band Sunset Jazz Festival in Mordialloc.

By the time we arrived, the festival was already in full swing with a substantial crowd, which proceeded to grow exponentially as McKinnon took to the stage.

Even though it was only three weeks into the school year, the Stage Band was already brandishing an impressive repertoire, including: a well-received rendition of Nat Adderley’s classic “Work Song”, crowd-pleasing favourite “Cold Duck Time” and finishing with Trombone Shorty’s upbeat modern jazz funk “Buckjump”.

On behalf of the Senior Stage Band, we would like to thank Mr. Serebrianik for his tireless efforts in directing and organising this event for the band. We would also like to express our gratitude to Ms. Papworth and Ms. Videon along with all the friends and families, who came to support the Stage Band at our very first performance of the year.
