Centre stage at Centrepiece
St Paul’s Anglican Grammar School students recently took to the stage to showcase their talents live to a community audience at the West Gippsland Arts Centre.
The school’s Traralgon and Warragul Campuses collaborated for the first time to present Centrepiece, captivating the audience with 28 acts ranging from solo musicians and vocalists to drama and dance. A selection of intermediate and advanced ensembles from both schools were also featured.
Through Centrepiece, Performing Arts teachers provide students with a real-world experience, not only on stage but also via the audition process which is open to all St Paul’s students. Soloists must complete an audition process similar to that of a postsecondary tertiary or professional production audition to be eligible for a spot on the Centrepiece stage, giving them insights into preparing for future performing arts application processes.
Students at St Paul’s can develop their performing arts potential through a number of co-curricular programs provided by the school, allowing them to personalise their learning experience and form friendships with students across year levels.
Centrepiece also provided Backstage Crew students the opportunity to work directly with the professional sound and lighting engineers at the Arts Centre, developing real-world work experience in a world-class theatre that they can use in their future professional portfolios.
Students will have another opportunity to enhance their solo and ensemble performance skills in the upcoming St Paul’s combined-campus concert, “Codetta,” which will take place at the Gippsland Performing Arts Centre in Traralgon on Tuesday 22 November.
