Concert in the Park has been reimagined with Thomas Carr College, Tarneit, filming a live performance of its 23-piece concert band playing high-energy contemporary music with vocals. Caroline Chisholm Catholic College in Braybrook featured two of its senior student bands playing great music, reminiscent of the old-style jazz halls.
Enjoy these performance videos and be further inspired by the students as you watch their tutorials on how to improvise, play various instruments and look after your voice.
