Aquinas College Band Visit
The Aquinas College Band, from Melbourne, Australia, and currently on tour, visited Trinity on Thursday 29th March.
The band, comprising 38 musicians and six staff, arrived in the morning and, after a hearty breakfast, rehearsed with Trinity Concert Band for the morning and the early part of the afternoon.
During the day our visitors also mingled, playing football on the yard at lunchtime, and were very complimentary about our school.
The combined bands, almost 100 strong, gave a fantastic concert to Years 7 and 8 in the afternoon. They were lead by Mr Barber from Aquinas and Mr Cardwell from Trinity. Many of the students commented on the quality of the music they heard and said it inspired them!
Aquinas College is a large Catholic College in Melbourne, Australia. The College has a famous concert band which is on a European Tour. They visited Trinity having previously visited and played at Ampleforth College in Yorkshire.
Trinity was honoured to host them and bade a fond farewell at the end of the day.
They now head off for Paris on the next leg of their tour and left us with an invitation to visit them in Melbourne!
