College Rock Showcase 2021

May 20, 2021 at 11:25 AM

From the moment our guests arrived at the College Music Centre last night, they knew they were in for a big one. Being offered earplugs as they lined up at the door and seeing more rows of seats in the audience than ever before were the first clues.

Eighteen rock bands and one solo artist from across the year groups performed in the biggest Rock Showcase yet! From the famous, classic rock hits like ‘TNT’ by ACDC, to original songs, our musicians, some performing for the first time, put their nerves aside and gave it their all.

The music students have several opportunities to perform to live audiences throughout the year, this was the first for 2021. Students are encouraged to write their own songs under the direction of Music Teacher, Mr Geordie McCallum. To help the students with their writing, the music department runs specific workshops during the year and calls on professionals from the music industry to take students through writing sessions. 

The Rock Programme has continued to grow over the years and last night’s performances, energy and keen audience were a great example of this. Our congratulations to all the students who took part in the evening. Keep it up!
