​The Year 12 Composition Showcase is an evening where our students perform a sample of their Composition work, demonstrating their commitment and creativity through the International Baccalaureate music course. Year 10 media team member, Morgan Lee provides her reflection of the event.

The Year 12 Music Composition Night was an artistically enriching event not to miss. It was lovely to see everyone buzzing before the night began, eager to hear the Year 12 final composition pieces.

The night kicked off with a beautiful piece titled Nature Walk composed by Charlotte Wheeler, all the different elements of the piece really transported us to a scenic forest, filled with life, an amazing opening piece.

The night progressed with all styles of music, from instrumental solos to larger orchestral pieces, both the students and the professionals were fantastically accomplished musicians. They fully embodied the pieces and we even witnessed them playing with their whole body. It was also lovely to see some Year 10 students getting involved and volunteering to be a part of the showcase.

As the night progressed, varied pieces were performed and appreciated in their own different way, the heart-wrenching song Right Here composed and performed by Will Kasper brought some to tears (or crying internally) and the beautiful piece Scatterbrain performed and composed by Mary-Helen on microphone and guitar with Sophie on Double bass; sounded like a platinum selling record.

At interval, everyone discussed the awesome pieces of music we had just heard and when asked, “Which was your favourite so far?” I don’t think anyone could answer because the more music we heard, the more we wanted to blissfully continue in this temporary world of musical enjoyment.

Visual components also accompanied some of the pieces (The depths of my mind by Brodie Lello and Maltzur by Kaija Scott). You could tell that every piece played had a story, a vision behind it and the hard work and dedication from the students and teachers was whole heartedly applauded.

It was a Friday night very well spent leaving everyone astonished, discussing the amazing talent that we have at QACI and of course wanting to hear more!
