With our last Celebration Concert being held in 2019, Monday 5 September 2022 was a night staff and students alike were looking forward to. After the hard work of the last six months where music was once again able to occur at school, the students have been working hard to create a concert performance to remember. Under the title ‘Magical Moments’ audience members were invited to share in the magic of music and reflect on some of the wonderful times the students have had as they have shared with others in their music journey this year.

We would like to congratulate all instrumental staff and all students who took part, it was a night to remember.

Student Reflection:

‘The 2022 Celebration Concert was a momentous evening. After missing the previous two years due to Lockdowns, it was absolutely fantastic to be able to perform LIVE again for our families and friends.

A huge thank you to all our incredible teachers. You are invaluable support and encouragement does not go unnoticed. You are so appreciated! I am sure my fellow vocalists, musicians and dancers felt the same emotions Monday evening.

As a Year 12 student it was also a time to reflect on what we had missed in the previous two years, the performance opportunities our exceptional Choirs had had in the past as well as our ‘Cantor Scholarship’ recipients.

As performing students we had all missed that special connection you receive with a live audience. The adrenaline and the endorphins that enable you to perform at a level you never thought you could. Such a credit to our resilience and perseverance. It was an honour as a VCE Music Performance student and Senior Choir member to be able to perform once again at OLMC in my final year.

It truly was a celebration for every musician, teacher and our family and friends.’
