Blackburn High School’s Senior Stage Band and Symphonic Band were given a standing ovation when they performed recently in Washington, DC. The performances were part of an international tour which included being the star attraction at the Mid-West Clinic, the largest music conference for teachers in the world.

Never in the 70 year history of the Mid-West Clinic, which is attended by 17,000 teachers, has two ensembles from the one school been invited to perform. This accolade demonstrates the quality of performances and the music excellence at Blackburn High School.

The Australian Ambassador’s Office recently wrote to the school to commend the staff and students on an exceptional performance.
