Music Support Group

 

​Ferny Grove State High School has an active Music Support Group comprised of parents and friends of the music program. The group is responsible for fundraising, writing submissions, and providing refreshments for students, staff and audience members at all performances. Fundraising activities provide the financial resources to purchase high quality instruments that help to enhance the calibre of performances, allow for the commissioning of music scores and employment of specialised tutors for the program. For example, the program has purchased items such as a grand piano, a set of electric drums and choir risers.

Parents are frequent visitors to the music staffroom and are encouraged not only to attend concerts but also to get involved in performing. The high level of joint involvement by parents and students strengthens the whole school community. Inspired by the success of the students’ choral projects, parents have continued the tradition by forming their own choir. This Community Choir now regularly performs at Gala Concerts and Soirees. The MSG regularly gets together with the HOD of Instrumental Music and other staff at meetings throughout the school year.
