Generations in Jazz

From Friday 3 May – Sunday 5 May in Mt Gambier, South Australia, 2,900 young musicians from all over Australia gathered to compete in this National School Big Bands competition. For the third year in a row Salesian College, in conjunction with Santa Maria College Northcote, entered 2 bands in the competition. A huge amount of work goes into giving our boys this fantastic opportunity and I would like to thank Mr Steven Beckham for driving us there and back. A huge thank you also, to Mr Daimon Brunton, our hard-working band leader. Members of the school community who were unable to get to South Australia will have the chance to see all our College Bands perform on Wednesday 29 May at our Autumn Concert.
