The Starry Nights music recital was held on the 22nd March and was a relaxed early evening event showcasing QACI's singer/songwriters, student-led bands and the stage band. The event featured jazz, acoustic and original repertoire, and was facilitated by Ms Freeman, Ms Collis, and Mr Christensen, who made sure that all performances ran smoothly.

Heavy rain meant that the recital could no longer be held on the balcony as planned; nevertheless, all students and teachers showed flexibility and enthusiasm, as the night was instead held undercover inside the refectory, which was aptly decorated with fairy lights. The performances during the recital were professional and demonstrated the excellence of the music department, as students shared their talent with the QACI community in a fun and relaxed environment.

Whilst appreciating the performances, audience members enjoyed antipasto platters served by the Blue Goose. Sachi Mehta in Year 12 sold desserts and drinks as part of her CAS project to raise money for Baan Unrak, a children's home in Sangkhlaburi, Thailand.

The Starry Nights music event was a supportive and long overdue welcome back to live music at QACI and served as a great opportunity for many of the Year 10 and 11 cohort to perform for the first time publicly for the QACI community. It was great to see attendance from parents, friends, teachers, and members of the wider community to support our musicians, and their impressive and confident performances.

This event would not have been possible without the assistance of the music department, and the helpers behind the scenes, as well as the performers who all did an incredible job.

Well Done Music Students!
