Music shines at 'A Night Full of Stars'

'A Night Full of Stars' was a musical celebration and tribute to the College’s history on its 80th Anniversary.

Held at The Concourse, Chatswood the concert showcased the College’s exceptional musical talents.
In a repertoire that ranged from classic (Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus, Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture) to contemporary (I’ve Gotta Feeling, All About That Bass) the program celebrated the history of music and the ways it has grown - from cadet bands, eisteddfods, large scale musical productions to digital music. Today more than 500 students participate in 23 ensembles at the College.
The College’s history was presented by students featuring historic photographs and music of the time.
One of the many highlights was the grand finale performance of Coldplay’s A Sky Full of Stars and Viva La Vida featuring the 320 member combined College Orchestra, Concert Band, Guitar, Percussion and String Ensembles, Choirs, Ensemble Directors and Instrumental Tutors, Staff and Old Boys. They received a standing ovation.
In a first for the College, the Concert was live streamed back to the College for the enjoyment of off-stage performers and staff.
