First Mass Choir Rehearsal
This week Miss Parkes and Miss Kaur took the WPS Choir into the city for the first mass rehearsal of the 2016 Victorian State School Spectacular.
The Spectacular provides an opportunity for students to perform in a professional and competition free arena production.
There are 3000 students in the cast. WPS students are part of the 1300 voice mass choir. On Wednesday we travelled into the Melbourne Town Hall. We joined other choir participants from schools across the state to sing and rehearse the repertoire for the show.
Also featured in the show – a 64 piece orchestra, 1200 mass dancers, 30 lead vocalists, 14 principal dancers, 16 ensemble dancers, 8 backing vocalists, 22 roller skaters, 10 puppeteers and one magician. The show lasts for three hours and has 41 songs from artists including Pentatonix, Ariana Grande, Bruno Mars, Kylie Minogue, Daft Punk, Lady Gaga, Hans Zimmer and Wagner.
Our students sang very well and are excited about the performances opportunities coming up this term.
