MSM Music Day Camp 2021
Despite not be able to enjoy the lakeside view, delicious refectory feasts, and overnight accommodation of Duchesne College at UQ this year due to their COVID plan, the 160 students at the MSM Music Day Camp 2021 enjoyed the novelty of the College turning into a Music School for the weekend, and chomped hungrily through Noodle Box for dinner after all their labours. The camp benefitted from the talents of our own excellent music staff as well as guests, Mr Mike Patterson from Girls Grammar, Mrs Kate Tyson from Ambrose Treacey, and Mr Joe Fallon and Dr Anthony Young from St Laurence’s College. Thanks to Music Captain, Lauren Cartwright, and the other Year 12 students for all their sterling efforts. A huge thank-you to the many MSM general staff who generously gave up parts of their time off to supervise the students, most especially Mrs Linda Statham, Director of Arts who was in there with me from go to whoah. If “music is how we decorate time” (Jean-Michel Basquiat), then last weekend was a very ornate event, but we all know it is much, much more than that. Just ask Einstein!
