Generations in Jazz 2017

Congratulations to 89 students from Concordia on their excellent performances at the recent Generations in Jazz event in Mount Gambier.

The standard of the competition was high again this year, with 4700 students from around Australia in attendance. Concordia was represented at 'Generations' by Big Bands 1, 2 and 3, the Jazz Collective and three choirs, with all groups performing well.

In particular we commend Big Band 2 for earning second place in Division 3.1, as well as congratulating Eddie, one of our Year 11 saxophonists, for being selected as a member of the Division 3 Super Band.

Mr Mat Noble, Director of Music at Concordia, was also honoured to receive the James Morrison Director's Award. As a result, we are delighted that James Morrison will be visiting and working with our students in the coming months!

A short video has been compiled from the first event in our Harmony in the Chapel lunchtime concert series for 2017, providing a snapshot of some of the tunes performed at 'Generations' this year.
