As you will know, OCS is hosting the inaugural Combined Christian Schools Music Festival (CCSMF) on August 6-8. We have around 340 participants, from OCS and several Christian schools coming to Orange from around NSW, to celebrate together God’s wonderful gift of music. We will be joined by expert musicians and teachers who will be directing our ensembles. (Notes will be going out this week to OCS students who will be involved.)
The first two days provide an opportunity for singers, band members, worship band members and string players to spend time honing their skills as they workshop pieces together. Then, on Saturday August 8 @ 2:00pm there will be a Grand Concert at Turners Vineyard Function Centre, Orange. This concert will be the culmination of the students’ (and teachers’) hard work as they present the pieces they have been working on.
To encourage both our students and those visiting, we warmly invite you to come along to be part of this very special event. There will be no charge for the concert and all are welcome. Obviously, the numbers who can attend the concert from the other schools involved are very limited due to the distance involved, so it would be wonderful to be able to provide a very appreciative audience for all our participants. Please let friends and family know about the concert and encourage them to join you as you support our music endeavours at OCS.
