Some of our Year 7s recently participated in the program Let Freedom Swing, run by the Lincoln Centre in New York. Due to Covid restrictions, the program this year was held online with students from around the world learning about the blues and submitting ideas and questions that were then turned into an Election Day concert streamed from New York. One of our students, Akeira Somphananpanya, had part or her work read out towards the end.
The students and ensembles of BHS cannot currently perform live to audiences, so we have taken it online with the release of the first two of our online concert series. Featuring soloists and ensembles from across the program, the concerts give a taste of the great work that our musical community has been undertaking.
During Term 4, we welcomed back all students and staﬀ to onsite learning and teaching following the COVID lockdown. There was an understandable level of both excitement and anticipation on the return to school but, from all accounts, it has been a very smooth and positive transition.
