Battle of the School Bands Final

Battle of the School Bands Final

On Friday 12 April Darwin High School and Darwin Middle School students came together to celebrate the end of term and the final heat of Battle of the School Bands.

The event was part of a collaborative STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) program between the schools' music programs to strengthen the partnership across both schools' music programs and provide students with a seamless transition from Middle to High School.

The competition is open to all middle and senior students who can enter as a part of a band, duo or soloist.

In its tenth year, Battle of the School Bands is a band competition for Northern Territory schools, which sees the winners play alongside international acts at the annual Bass in the Grass music festival in May 2019.

Congratulations to our Year 12 student and soloist Phoebe Wear (pictured above), Year 11 student Joanne The, a duo with Jayna from Casuarina Senior College and bands Open Scars and Blue Lagoon (pictured below) who competed in the final last night at the Railway Club.

Special mention to our year 12 student Alix Mullavey whose heat scores were high enough to qualify her for the final but she is unable to perform because she will be away for the DHS Melbourne Arts trip.

Congratulations to Darwin High School band Open Scars who won the band category and will now go on to perform at Bass in the Grass later this month.
