Did you miss it? Take a listen…

Did you miss it?  Take a look at some of the amazing performances by our innovative, creative, accomplished QACI music students performed at our Creative Ensembles Showcase, Musical Journeys on Sunday 22 May 2016.

The Creative Ensembles program was established in 2013 as the co-curricular Music initiative, forging a stronger connection between classroom and ensemble music. The program encourages students to embrace the opportunity to pursue their own interests and passions in their performance studies. They work within self-directed groups with support provided by the QACI Music staff. Students select their own instrumentation, repertoire, and arrange the music to suit their ensemble. Their entrepreneurship and creativity are the driving force behind each of the performances.
