The Geelong College Foundation Concert 2021
It is with regret that we must announce this year’s College Foundation Concert will not be going ahead on Friday 13 August. A complex set of current government restrictions and uncertainty about future conditions, means we simply cannot continue working towards the event in its planned format. A further vital consideration is the lost rehearsal time for our many ensembles and so the readiness of our students and staff is not where we need it to be. The pressure of the next two weeks would be significant and, even then, we could not guarantee the event would take place.
The College Foundation’s unending support and enthusiasm for this event is humbling. They, too, are disappointed but understanding of our need to make this decision. I would like to personally thank Scott Chirnside and the entire Foundation for their loyalty and generous support of The Geelong College, in particular our music program.
We are keen to work together as a College in the coming weeks to identify performance opportunities for our students of all ages. We are especially mindful of our senior musicians in Year 12, whose passion, talent and commitment to music over many years needs to be celebrated and enjoyed. We are hopeful of planning some appropriate, dignified and special moments for them.Emily FitzSimons - Acting Director of Music
