25th Anniversary Celebration Concert

Ivanhoe Grammar School’s Plenty Campus has earned its reputation for excellence in the Performing Arts since first opening in 1990. The campus had nearly half of the students learning a musical instrument and all 75 students at the campus were involved in the first Musical Production, It’s Cool in the Furnace.

Today the campus has nearly 200 students learning a musical instrument or singing with many more learning outside the School. Over 140 students are involved in ensembles and over 100 secondary students are involved in the annual Musical Production. Every Primary student is involved in the biennial Musical Production, or equivalent Showcase Performance. On Wednesday 16 September Plenty Campus celebrated 25 years of the Performing Arts and the program included music and dance from the Primary and Secondary School as well as performances from alumni. The evening commenced with a performance by the Secondary Orchestra, followed by the Combined Primary Choir who sang Michael Jackson’s Blame it on the Boogie. There were many highlights of the evening including Year 11 student Simon Pang’s rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody on the piano, Year 10 and Year 11 Music Class Ensembles as well as the Dance Ensemble performing to How Big, How Blue by Florence and the Machine. The Secondary Choir and Jazz Band performed a medley of songs from previous Plenty Campus musicals and the wonderful finale was performed by the combined Primary and Secondary Choirs, Secondary Orchestra and alumni Payel Chakraborty (’14) and Jack Brown (’06) who performed The New World, which represented the past, present and future of performing arts. The evening was a wonderful success and a credit to the hard working Music staff at Plenty Campus. Congratulations to all involved, we look forward to the next 25 years!
