The JFS Music Department has had a particularly busy two weeks following a choir workshop with Stephen Glass, a performance at the Regional Festival of Music for Youth where JFS Singers were complemented for their “accomplished and experienced singing”, as well as the 2020 Battle of the Bands.
Our winning band this year, Kiwi, for was made up of students from Years 9 and 10. Our guest judges, all music professionals, commented on the high standard of musicianship. There was a great atmosphere and the camaraderie from our students was impressive.
Congratulations go to the winners Angelina Levicki (Vocals), Jessica Jones (Vocals / Guitar)’ Jasmin Jones (Alto Saxophone) and Charlie Solomon (Piano) for their rendition of “I know what you did last Summer” by Shawn Mendes & Camilla Cabello. They will be looking forward to their prize of a recording session at The Roundhouse.
We also wish to congratulate the group ‘Punchline’ who sang “Uncle Walter” by Ben Folds Five and achieved second place as well as the group ‘No Direction’ who sang “In my Blood” by Shawn Mendes who achieved third place. Both groups received a goodie bag from Universal Music.
