A musical evening to remember

A musical evening to remember

The College's Vocal Ensemble proved their talents aren't limited to singing, putting on a real show during their performance.

CBC's annual Music Festival last night showcased the diverse talents of the College's musicians and vocalists, across all years.

The Jazz Orchestra kicked off the evening at the Riverton Baptist Church, with Andrew Armstrong (Year 12) and Timothy McClelland (Year 11) providing powerful vocals as they performed jazz classics with a modern twist.

The College's Guitar Ensembles and Brass Ensemble performed original pieces composed by their tutors, with skill and professionalism beyond their years.

The Vocal Ensemble donned shower caps for a quirky rendition of 'Rubber Ducky', with bubbles blowing through the crowd adding further fun to the contagious Sesame Street tune.

CBC's Choir sounded rich and pitch perfect in a capella, singing 'Sweet Georgia Brown', and 'History Has Its Eyes on You' from the hit musical, Hamilton.

The Big Band and Junior Band stunned the audience with their renditions of 'Breezin'', and 'Somethin' Different', along with other classics they have been working hard to master over the year.

The Fremantle Jazz Orchestra, which is largely made up of CBC Old Boys, finished the evening with some very tight tunes, inspiring current students to continue their musical journey after they graduate from the College.

The event was supported by the hard-working Music Parents' Group, who organised light refreshments during intermission and provided raffles to raise funds for tours and performances.

The Festival is one of many ways the College develops boys' aspirations for personal excellence, a key characteristic of the CBC gentleman.
