Floriade Performance 2014

The performances from both the Concert Band and Jazz Band at Floriade were great! The Concert Band played (in no particular order) Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy (cue trumpets) YMCA (the Jazz Band showed off their dance moves), Sesame Street and our favourite, sort of, Frozen.

The Jazz Band then took centre stage, playing some classics including Watermelon Man and Cantaloupe Island as well as showing off their vocalist’s skills with Fly Me to the Moon, Summertime and Fever. There were lots of families and young children in the audience who thoroughly enjoyed the performance.

Afterwards, we had an hour to ourselves to explore Floriade. The bamboo forest was a popular choice, with many tricks being played on people. The Ferris wheel was also visited which offered many opportunities to spy on your friends as well as wonderful views of the flowers.

On the way back on the bus we started a group sing-a-long of “99 bottles of beer on the wall” and reached the end of the song (with only some small cheats) by the time we returned to school.

Overall it was a wonderful experience.
