Music News | Junior School

At the recent Junior School assembly, we were entertained by Mimo (1Fo), who played Russian Fantasy by Portnoffon the violin with piano accompaniment. He has been learning violin for two years. Mimo plays in the Vivaldi String Orchestra and also plays piano. His sports of choice are soccer, swimming and running, but he also likes board games, especially Monopoly. “I especially love to go to the Zoo and the Aquarium with my family. I have fish and two sea snails. One day I want to catch a lizard!” Mimo said this year’s achievement has been winning the Junior Section in the TGS Soloist Competition. My goal is be admitted into the Junior School Advancement Programme so he can join Serenata. I would like to sit my Grade 6 violin exam. He says, “I like string instruments because of the beautiful melodies you can create.”

Congratulations to Felix (4Fo) and Charlie (6Fo) who both recently passed their Grade 4 Piano for Leisure AMEB exams with flying colours. Well done, Charlie and Felix!
