Music

children playing instrumentsThe Performing Arts area in Rooms 6 and 7 is where all classes have lessons in Drama, Music and Dance. We have a big space where we can move, dance and work in groups. We have a piano, a drum kit, an interactive white board and a whole host of percussion instruments.

All students in Year 6/7 have the opportunity to be in our Festival choir to learn the repertoire of songs for the Primary School's Festival of Music concert series. This event is held in September at the Festival Theatre. Our students perform on one of these nights and join hundreds of students and an orchestra to present an outstanding evening of entertainment.

Girls in Year 4 and 5 have their own singing group and as well as singing at assemblies and mini concerts, they have performed to groups within the community. They have a wide repertoire of songs and are a very enthusiastic group of talented singers!

The Boys from CLG are well known in the community for their enthusiasm and their hot pink polo shirts! Boys from Years 4-7 can join this lunch time group and their repertoire of songs, both past and present are especially suited to their funky sound and presence!

Our Junior Singers are in Years 2 and 3 and they are always a big hit with parents and community groups because of their obvious love of performing. In the past few years they have performed at Carols by the Creek and local retirement villages and senior citizens groups.

Every two years, the students at CLG present an evening at the Adelaide Town Hall ..... Lighting Up The Arts. Students from Year 3-7 present a fantastic 90 minute concert of song and dance. It is an opportunity for all classes, singing groups, the rock band, percussion ensembles and outstanding soloists to showcase their talent.

In alternate years, students in Reception, Year 1 and 2, present a musical for Grandparents and others at our Special Persons Day. Their wonderful singing and acting always delights our invited guests.
