The concert will take place at the college’s playing fields and will feature the school’s vocal group and pipe band, performing alongside PSO.

Head of music David Coughlan said the sheer size of the March o concert was a first for Scotch and the school was excited to have an opportunity to perform with the orchestra.

‘I guess there are some pieces of music such as the school song, when everyone is singing with the pipe and drum band, and the orchestra on the stage ” that’s when you get the shivers up the spine,’ he said.

Twenty-five students from Scotch and 25 from Presbyterian Ladies College will perform various classical songs as well as contemporary favourites, including The Circle of Life from the Lion King.

Year 12 student and vocal team captain Brad Roberts said singing helped every other aspect of his musical studies and he looked forward to the performance.

Mr Coughlan said the camaraderie and friendship among the performers was a special opportunity for students, one that was difficult to recreate after school life.

‘I think with the musical groups, along with the pipe band, that sense of community is a part of belonging to something that is unique.’

Tickets are $47.50 for adults and $17.50 for under 18s. For more details visit www.perthsymphony.com.
