The journey down to Band Camp is an adventure in itself as the buses snake through Galston Gorge, winding down a trail through the bush up to the gates of the Crosslands Convention Centre.
119 students and teachers from Sydney and Canberra Adventist Schools traversed down to hold the annual Band Camp over the 1st to the 3rd of June this past term.
The two days of practice enabled students to develop and learn to play as part of a band and improve their sight-reading and instrumental skills leading up to the final concert. It was not all work and no play however, as the young performers got to wander around the surrounding camp grounds and enjoy the nature surrounding them and the company of other students from Adventist schools.
The concert was performed on the Wednesday night at the Galston Church Hall and featured a string ensemble, guitar ensemble, advanced band and combined band. Band Camp continues to be a wonderful program that allows students from our different Adventist schools to be able to come together and experience the thrill of creating music with other students.
