Last Friday and Saturday, over 70 instrumental music students participated in the TCC Music Camp. This camp was immersive workshop where most of the College’s ensembles had the opportunity to develop their ensembles pieces, sound, and get to know all the new instrumental music students that have joined this year. Thanks to everyone’s enthusiastic participation, the camp was a great success! Thank you to the instrumental music teachers Mrs Stephanie Coughlan, Dr Ayesha Hall, Miss Brandi Luck and Mr Kane Robinson for ensuring fun was had by all.

 

On Sunday 14 March, the first Chamber Concert of 2021 will be being held in St. Joseph’s Cathedral.
