Almost 100 students between Class 3 and Class 8 from over 7 schools in the Bellingen area came together and made a big powerful sound together at Bellingen High School last Friday. The workshop was a great success!! Enthusiastic responses from some of the Chrysalis students included:
- ‘It was awesome!!’
- ‘It was really tiring but it was extremely fun!’
- ‘It felt fun to be in the Youth Orchestra for the first time!’
Thanks to all of the Chrysalis Tutors who gave their time to be there – Natasha Dyson, Jacquie Gill, Tarni St John & Janelle Taylor, and for Class 5 Teacher Michele for looking after over 25 Chrysalis String Players who participated. Also thanks to the High School for hosting, Ann Phelan & Elizabeth Scott for conducting, as well as the BHS Senior Student Tutors (including previous Chrysalis students Mali, Freya & Nicholas).
