Every year, members of MSE have the opportunity to perform a concerto with the orchestra. In a baroque or classical work this also allows the soloist to lead and direct the orchestra.
To become a rounded musician students need to develop a deep understanding of a musical work as a whole. Performing music from all perspectives, playing a solo line, accompanying, and leading all are important. The Concerto Concert gives our senior students the opportunity to perform 1 or 2 movements of a concerto with the backing of the string orchestra.

We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
