NSHS Band students win gold in Sydney
Posted on 16/10/2013
During the July school holidays two NSHS Band members, Caleb Pascoe and Emily Ballantyne and two ex NSHS band members Blake Howieson and Matthew Ballantyne travelled to Sydney and Canberra with the Perth Hills and Wheatbelt Band for a 13 day tour. The Band was directed by Peter Hind and Phil Robertson from the Instrumental Music School Services. The tour highlight was winning a gold medal at the Australian International Music Festival and becoming the first visiting band to play at a changing federation guard closing ceremony at the Australian War Memorial. The band comprised of members from 8 different schools. The band is now preparing for a four week tour of the European battlefields in July 2015. Well done Emily, Caleb, Blake and Matthew.
