Woodwind Bonanza Success

St Stanislaus’ College recently held a Woodwind Bonanza for music students which included Year 9 Elective Music students, Stannies band members and musicians from MacKillop College.

The combination of instruments on the day provided a unique sound, sonorous and warm, sometimes breathy and occasionally squeaky! The ensemble played an interesting mix of saxophone sextet, woodwind quintet, and quartet arrangements. There was much focus and concentration shown throughout the workshop and all these students are strongly encouraged to consider band parts in the Stannies Mackillop Combined College Musical for 2022. Something to definitely look forward to.
