Top Class Music and Drama

Top Class Music and Drama

We are delighted to announce two outstanding student achievements in music and drama.

Year 12 student Angela Gong will perform in this year’s Top Class Music program as part of the VCE Season of Excellence 2017. Angela is an outstanding performer of Oboe and Piano, and she maintains a keen interest in Composition. Her original work Reverie (for Violin and Piano) was premiered last year at our school concert at the Melbourne Recital Centre.

The Top Class Music concerts present exemplary performances covering a range of music styles from VCE Music Performance, Music Investigation and VET Music.

Top Class is a concert series that presents the works of outstanding VCE students from 2016 in Dance, VET Dance, Drama, Theatre Studies, Music Performance, Music Investigation, Music Style and Composition and VET Music. 

Angela will perform Humoresque from Fantasiestucke Op. 2 by Carl Nielsen. The concert will take place on March 22 at 2.00pm at the Melbourne Recital Centre.

Class of 2016 graduate Georgina Wawryk will perform in this year’s Top Class Drama and Theatre Studies program also as part of the VCE Season of Excellence 2017.    

Following the auditions held in late January of the highest scoring VCE Drama students from 2016, 27 were selected to perform their VCE Drama Solo as presented in their October Performance exam. This year, all Prescribed Character Structures from 2016 are represented across a wide range of interpretations.

Georgina’s performance was a response to the prescribed stimulus of The Matchmaker – a very humorous performance and a unique interpretation of the stimulus material.

Top Class is a concert series that presents the works of outstanding VCE students from 2016 in Dance, VET Dance, Drama, Theatre Studies, Music Performance, Music Investigation, Music Style and Composition and VET Music.

The VCE Season of Excellence is managed by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority. 

Congratulations Georgina and Angela!
