An inspiring night of musical talent
“Music is the strongest form of Magic” (Marilyn Manson) and a range of talented St Mark’s musicians displayed some magical moments at last night’s Arts evening.
George Glass Productions opened the show with one of their pieces from the satirical Abbott! the Musical. The new band members Will Treacy, Ben Fox, Jason Geddie and Andrew Casey provided a new dimension of sound to one of their hit songs “Misogyny Me”. The larger troupe is a tangible demonstration of how well our old and current collegians can work together.
Our College Choir performed a fabulous rendition of the Rose (original performed by Bette Middler) which was then followed by some brilliant performances from a range of different musical genres.
Classical piano, musical ballads, flute duets, guitar solos and a duo on the ukulele held the attention of a full College audience. The highlight of the night was probably the rendition of Madonna’s Like a Virgin by Riverland pair Andrew Casey and Jason Geddie, whose cabaret style enthused the audience into singing along with the chorus. Alex Makarowsky, Ben Fox, Christina Simpson, Lachlan McLeod, Shaylee Kassulke, Liam Hay, Chanel Li, Pippa Jones, Henry Hole and Imogen Hole provided some real skill, imagination and variety which made for a wonderful evening.
