HSC Recital On Wednesday 2nd September 2020 from 12.40 to 1.20pm, the Wesley Lunchtime concert series is pleased to present outstanding HSC music students from Canberra Grammar School. The varied program includes solo performances on violin, voice, clarinet, flute, guitar and xylophone. Canberra Grammar School prepares students for the New South Wales Higher School Certificate as well as the International Baccalaureate. This year, seven students are preparing for the HSC and two for the IB Diploma Program. Today’s concert is an important part of the students’ HSC preparation, as the exam will be held in the Wesley Music Room on September 18. Music is a tremendously important part of Canberra Grammar School because the School recognises that an appreciation of music is a source of enduring pleasure that will last a lifetime. Instrumental, classroom and co-curricular music weave together to provide opportunities at all levels of music education – from solo and ensemble performance through to the study of musical history, composition and musicology. The School has a wide range of choirs, orchestras and bands for students, as well as many smaller ensembles for individual instrumental groups.
