Our Year 12 Jazz Ensemble Musicians this year were:
The Red Keyes: Nick Taylor (FB), Sophie Roderick (He), Sam Nott (He), Alexander Bajer (Fr) and Marnie Hehir (EM);
The Exaggerations: Harrison Fricker (FB), Euan Orford (A), Ben Chaney (A), Liv Buzadzic (Cl) and Annabelle Aston (Ga); and
The IB Jazz Ensemble – Take the Coda: William Hua (M), Georgie Brown (A) and Florencia Qiu (EM). Mr Charlie Scudamore has also joined the IB group as a special guest to sing a couple of great tunes.

We celebrate their achievements through the 2017 CD entitled ‘Make Jazz Great Again’.

Songs range from interesting arrangements of contemporary tunes to jazz standards. The CD will be a definite hit among your family’s Christmas presents this year! Make sure you also secure a copy for yourself.


Our thanks to the Jazz Ensemble students – they have worked very hard this year perfecting their performances – with the definite highlight for many of us being the Arts Support Group Twilight Dinner where they had the opportunity to showcase their skills to the wider GGS community.

A big thank you also to the Jazz Master, Mr Paul Rettke for the work he has done with the bands throughout this, his last, year teaching Jazz at GGS.
