On Sunday 28 August, Yardbirds participated in the Open Age Group section of the annual Clarinet and Saxophone Society competition which was held at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music – Opera Space. Yardbirds is Ormiston College’s premium saxophone ensemble. Members are Lisa Ban, Sophie Hinchliffe, Shirley Lu and Kali Roche. They played Tocatta and Fugue by Bach and (Sometimes I Feel Like A) Motherless Child by Rick Hirsch and received some wonderful feedback from their adjudicator.
The Ormiston College students really held their own against some strong competition including ensembles from the Queensland Conservatorium who took out the section. Competitions such as this one gives students valuable performance experience and growth as an ensemble. It was a wholly worthwhile experience and we look forward to participating again next year.
