Cabaret Night - A night of sparkling performances

1 May 2017

The roaring 20s was the theme for this year’s Cabaret Night and what an occasion it was. With lots of sparkle, dancing, singing and performances from our multi-talented students, together with the help of our Music Staff and Friends of Music, the night was a resounding success.

This year, the evening was divided into two Acts. Act 1 showcased our Years 5 and 6 performing arts students, who incorporated drama, singing and dance in their roaring 20s routines.  Well known songs from this era included "When you're smiling",  "I got Rhythm", "Puttin' on the Ritz", and "Anything Goes" which were all performed by our music instrumental students. Inspired by the 20s theme, the girls looked spectacular in their costumes full of sequins, feathers and colour.

Act 2 was a variety showcase involving students in Years 7-12 who confidently tap danced, sang, performed solos, duets and trios.

Our Live Auction, Silent Auction and Raffle were also very successful thanks to the enthusiastic support and hard work of the Friends of Music team. Special mention to Shan Morrison, Dian Lee, Doreen Tang, Louise Hordern, Tatyana Zubenko, Rola Tal, Jodie Gordhandas, Deborah Ogawa, and Dimple Garg.  All proceeds will be going towards updating our Technology in the Performing Arts department.

Congratulations to everyone involved for a spectacular night of musical entertainment.
