Emerging talent from Byron High School will be on show at the Byron Community Centre this Monday September 24 from 7pm as students showcase the exciting work the students have been creating for their HSC examinations. Expect compelling solo and group drama, comedy and music genres from Baroque cello, ballads, rock, pop, blues and punk.

Music teacher Daniel Read said, ‘Among the performances will be a comedic piece performed by Lachlan Sproul, who was recently nominated by HSC examiners to go to the next stage of the selection process for ONSTAGE!, a state-wide “best of” showcase in Sydney.’

The show will feature an inclusive selection of compelling solo and group drama pieces of varying styles and moods. Musical performances will cover a variety of genres from Baroque cello to solo ballads and rock, pop, blues and punk groups. The evening will also feature some student’s original compositions.

‘The drama and music students have been working hard to develop and polish pieces for their HSC exams,’ said Daniel.

‘The students will have performed for the examiners by the time of this show, so will be more relaxed and excited to share their works to an audience.’

‘The evening promises to a wonderful night of music and drama; a celebration of the great things that have been happening at Byron High.’

Tickets for the show can be purchased from The Byron Community Centre.
