The Tekee Tokee Tomak School Presentation, visited Sydney Secondary College, Blackwattle Bay Campus on the 30th May. This is the 4th year of the presentation at this State High School. The year 11 group of this school actively raise funds to help the high school of Maliana, in Timor Leste. Through the project the students develop a fantastic awareness of one of their nearest neighbours and come to realise how lucky and privileged their own lives are! The photo is of the teacher behind the project in Timor Wayne Collcott, with Ros Dunlop the presenter, Ros is dressed in the traditional dress for women. Great work for 3 years now by Sydney Secondary College.
Charisma would like to invite you to our third concert in our 2008 series. The House of York, referring to the University of York where a number of the Australian composers represented in this concert spent time as post graduate students. Wilfred Mellors, probably best known as an eminent musicologist was teacher to Roger March, Stephen Ingham and Martin Wesley-Smith, Kirsty Beilharz was a post graduate at York a couple of decades later. The program promises to be diverse and James Kortum plays with Charisma in Wesley-Smith’s piece db the title referring to the Australian Composer Don Banks. Join us at the conclusion of the concert for a drink and nibbles.
