St Lukes wins big at MusicFest
STUDENTS at St Luke's Anglican School were on song, bringing home two platinum awards after competing at MusicFest in Brisbane on the weekend.
The junior and senior string ensembles both received the competition's highest honour for their performances at the prestigious festival, which featured schools from across Queensland and New South Wales.
Platinum awards are given to those orchestras that score above 90%.
The school's orchestra was also recognised, receiving the gold award - meaning the group had scored above 80%.
String ensemble conductor Amanda Roche said the students had been incredibly excited when they stepped off stage.
"When you have an outstanding performance, you just know," she said.
"It's like a musical bubble."
Ms Roche said the students had been practising all year for MusicFest and recently began extra practices in lunch hours.
"Our students have been very committed," she said.
The school also received three silver awards at the event.
