After several big fundraisers and a lot of rehearsals, 8th October saw 13 of our students join forces with St John’s College for a combined Music Tour of Samoa. The strong performance troupe consisted of a Vocal Ensemble, Barbershop, Vocal Quartet, Jazz Band, Concert Band, Drum Corps, Guitar Ensemble and more.
Concerts were performed at various schools, resorts and at a White Sunday Church Service. When the group was not performing they were swimming with turtles in the ocean, snorkelling, meeting the locals, exploring the island and immersing themselves in the local culture. A fantastic time was had by all, lifelong friendships made and performers treated like rock stars. There were lots of photos, autographs, and compliments from the public and hotels about the professionalism and high standard of the shows and the impeccable behaviour of the students. We arrived home on 16th October and were at school the next day, a little bleary-eyed but with big smiles still on our faces.
