Festival of Voices

The Dominic College 5/6 Choir spent Monday and Tuesday preparing to sing as part of a massed combined choir at Tasmania Sings, in the City Hall on Tuesday evening.

The Dominic students combined with 500 other children from schools all around Tasmania, working with the conductor Christie Anderson from Adelaide, to prepare five songs. The Tasmanian Youth Philharmonic Orchestra joined the choir for two of these pieces, and this group featured Year 9 students Harry Breslin (viola) and Oscar Breslin (cello).

Dominic’s contribution was enhanced by Sally Quinn and Priyannika Kumrai who were assigned the opening solo in Dreamtime by Harley Mead.

Sally and Priyannika sang beautifully and led the massed choir in the opening of this song.

Georgia McPherson was also one of the two MCs for the entire concert and she spoke beautifully and represented Dominic proudly.

All students involved should be very proud of their contribution to this wonderful Festival of Voices event.
