Wangaratta Festival of Jazz & Blues

On Wednesday, 1 November students from Swan Valley Anglican Community School (SVACS), St Marks Anglican Community School and St George’s Anglican Grammar School joined together to travel to Wangaratta in Victoria and attend the annual Wangaratta Festival of Jazz & Blues.

Held annually and recognized as Australia’s foremost festival of jazz and blues, the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz & Blues is a diverse program presenting a combination of international and local acts.

Our hosts were Wangaratta Cathedral College (ASC) and their enthusiastic head of music Dr Phil Bohem. Our students had the amazing opportunity to perform at the Sunday Jazz Mass at the Holy Trinity Cathedral in central Wanagratta amalgamating with Bridie King and the Gospel Belles performing songs such as "This little light of mine", "Just a closer walk with thee" and "When the saints go marching in".

The students also embraced the opportunity to visit and perform at Albury Trinity College and the Oxley Farm Markets. Amidst their performances the students were fortunate to watch performances by acclaimed Australian and International Artists. This trip was a fantastic opportunity for our students and has forged stronger connections between the ASC schools involved. The SVACS music department are very proud of how the students represented the school. Their enthusiasm and performance is to be commended and we look forward to attending this prestigious event in future years.
