Bandstravaganza displays public schools’ musical talent

Each year students from across Canberra public schools perform in Bandstravaganza, an annual event, which provides motivation for children to engage in music activities, cooperative learning, social interaction and gain performance skills.

Bandstravaganza has been running for 25 years, with 1,310 students participating in 2014. It is an event that introduces students to a range of music styles from percussion ensembles to jazz and concert bands.

Speaking at the 2014 event on 17 November, Instrumental Music Program Principal Naida Blackley highlighted the growth of the event, saying "Back in the late 1970s when I was a student, the event was held at Manuka Oval with the musicians sitting on the concrete seats and the parents in the middle on the grass on their folding chairs. How wonderful to have developed now into this grand performance over three nights in Canberra's top music performance venue at the ANU School of Music."
