Drama and Music News

Both within the school and in the wider community, Launceston Grammar students have been lively in drama and music activities – and there are more activities on the horizon.

If you’ve been out and about in Launceston at the theatre, chances are you’ve enjoyed a performance by one of our talented students as we had actors performing in Stage Right Youth Theatre’s Lion King and Lyte Theatre’s Scots on the Rocks.

Developing junior musicians and nurturing the talent, skills and confidence they have been displaying all year, the Junior Music Camp was run this week at Camp Clayton. Our students demonstrated a love of learning, relishing the opportunity to work collaboratively to build skills in a more relaxed setting – with fun activities along the way.

Recently our students were outstanding at the St. Cecilia Music Festival with excellent results across the board. The music festival gives the invaluable opportunity for students to build performance skills and have their hard work rewarded with the recognition of achievement they deserve. There were multiple gold and silvers awarded to our students, along with some perfect scores and a Session Award from Barratt’s Music.

The blossom is starting to spread around Launceston which means our Spring Concert isn’t far away now. Featuring students from Grades 3 to 12, the concert is a celebration of all things music at Grammar. There will be performances from the choirs, instrumental ensembles, the Grade 5 Production, and from the cast of Cats, our School Production for 2023.

The Spring Concert will be held at the Tailrace Centre at 6pm on Tuesday, 13th of September, preceded by music and refreshments in the foyer. Tickets will be available for purchase soon and this promises to be an event that shouldn’t be missed.

Students rehearse Cats for their hotly anticipated performance at The Princess Theatre next year. Tickets can be bought here.
