Stunning Performances by Students

It was all go in the Music Department for the last week of Term 2. PERFORMANCE WEEK at Fraser is where all Senior Music students showcase what they have been practising over term 1 and 2.

PERFORMANCE WEEK was jam-packed with stunning performances on guitar, drums, violin, piano, keyboard and also outstanding vocalists singing up a storm! PERFORMANCE WEEK is an assessment opportunity for our Senior Music students as they add performances to their growing music portfolios.

PERFORMANCE WEEK was made up of lunchtime concerts every day, an evening recital, and we then finished the week with a “Let’s Groove Tonight” themed dance/performance.

The lunchtime concerts were open for anyone to attend. Cephas, year 11 student who attended said “We were able to appreciate our friends and admire their talent”.

We have five Senior Music classes at Fraser and for our themed dance/concert this involved our classes preparing songs as a band and then performing together.

A bit of competition between our Music teachers added to the fun of the process and the night. Whanau were able to sit and enjoy the performances or could join the other students as they danced the night away.

Year 12 student, Aneke, said “It was cool how instead of just watching, we were able to feel the music while dancing”.

Year 12 student, Nolan, said “Playing was a highlight for me. It was a cool vibe”.

We hope we can continue this “cool vibe” every year!
