KATANDRA VOICES – a choir for High School to 21 years of age
1. "Thulele Mama Ya". Words and Music by Lisa Young from Cocos Lunch. This piece is inspired by the zulu phrase "thula mama" meaning "don't cry" or "don't worry mama". Katandra are performing their own improvised arrangement of this song with Djembe played by Nell Hudson, and small drum played by Ruby Archer.
2. "Take Me Home". Words and Music by Kevin Olusola, Kirstin Maldonado and Audra Mae. Arranged by Roger Emerson. Sit back and enjoy the wonderful harmonies in this beautiful song.
PRIMARY WIND ENSEMBLE – aka Super Band – an ensemble for Primary School students learning woodwind, brass, percussion and bass.
1. “Gridlock” - Michael Vertoske
Can anything strike fear into more people than a traffic gridlock? Stuck in the car for eons with no one to talk to but the immediate family, cell phones not working, computers at home, horns blaring, tempers flaring...you get the picture. Michael Vertoske brings the dreaded gridlock into the band room to be tamed...and defeated
THE PERCUSSION ENSEMBLE – a small group of percussionist of all ages which looks at different types of percussion instruments
1. The Percussion Ensemble will be performing a Taiko Drumming piece by Sean Steele (Head of Percussion Department) called “Sapporo Yuki Matsuri”. The translation of the title is the Snow Festival in Sapporo Japan which is an annual celebration during winter to celebrate the snow. They have many Drum performances within all the street festivities and the rhythms in this piece are based on traditional patterns from this festival.
