Monash Youth Music Festival

1st place in the Monash Youth Music Festival Middle School choir competition.

The Killester Music Department seems to be having a golden year. Our Swing Sisters choir, under the direction and loving guidance of Ms. Brigette Garafolo, travelled to Robert Blackwood Hall to perform at the Monash Youth Music
Festival ( formerly the Waverley Eisteddfod).

The girls were entered in the middle school choir section and were the first to perform. Our girls filled the enormous hall with a beautiful sound. Highlights were a great vocal solo from Esther Kiir in the spiritual, Wade in the Water, and a lovely warm tonal quality from the whole choir in the Beatles’ classic, Hey Jude. Aleena Thoppil and Ella Dawson went up on stage to accept our first placing and the cheque for $200.00.

Congratulations to all of the twenty three girls who performed. A lot of lunchtimes were spent working hard on their singing and this was a great reward for their efforts.🤗👩‍🎤🌹 #KillesterSpringvale
