On Thursday 8 June, PLC Sydney Music Department held their Annual Music Festival which was titled 'Grand Designs'. Even though the foyer was not ready for the Stage Band to provide pre-concert entertainment, they still wowed the audience and set the scene for an exciting night ahead. In between beautiful performances by the Symphony Orchestra, Senior Chamber Orchestra and Wind Ensemble, the Percussion Ensemble danced a conga line to Latin rhythms creating wall to wall entertainment. The second half of the night featured non-stop music beginning with Senior Bells, Chamber Strings and Baroque Orchestra. Pipes and Drums were then featured followed by Big Band, Vocal Ensemble, Madrigal and Chamber Choir. The evening closed with College Choir performing an exciting arrangement of 'Crazy Little Thing Called Love'. Congratulations to all performers and thank you for making this such an enjoyable night of outstanding musical entertainment.

PLC Sydney students, Aja Davidson (Year 9), Sophie Montague (Year 10) and Yash Moodley (Year 10), put on a stellar performance as cast members of Newington College Middle School Production 'The 39 Steps'.

Yash played the part of Pamela/Mr Higgins, Aja took on the role of Annabella/ Mrs McGarrigle while Sophie became Radio Announcer/Margaret/Mrs Jordon.  

Director, Mr Ben Williams. said of the play: 'lt takes a cast who are willing to be flexible, energetic and have a bit more than your average amount of fun on stage. I have been proud to work with an extraordinary cast who have done just that to bring this weird and wonderful spy-fiction spoof to life. I applaud their ability to put on characters at a moment's notice and their willingness to tackle problems as varied as affecting ridiculously broad Scottish accents or travelling in a vehicle held together by nothing but the willing suspension of disbelief. I thank them for their tireless efforts for this production - I hope they can now revel in its success'.
