Yeronga’s most experienced string players gathered at Iona College on Saturday to compete in the 2011 MusicFest competition. Although the audience was small, the event was big and all players looked and sounded well prepared. A range of musical styles was performed with a hoe-down style piece clearly the favourite. The skill of their director, Mrs Tamsyn Eastgate was evident and a real sense of enjoyment and commitment shone throughout the performance. After being awarded a bronze level trophy, year 6 members could then go home for a good weekend’s sleep after having been on camp for five days before the event.
Thank you to families for transporting ensemble members to Lindum on the day.
