Congratulations to the students comprising sixteen TCC ensembles who performed at the annual Queensland Catholic Schools’ Music Festival (QCMF) over the weekend. The festival was hosted by Villanova College in Brisbane. The festival welcomed over 13,00 student performances by 450 ensembles representing 100 Catholic schools from across Queensland. Three schools came from overseas for the festival.  A fabulous musical effort by our ensembles brought home seven gold, eight silver and one bronze award. 

The results in performance order:


Whilst in Brisbane the students enjoyed a short visit to Garden City Shopping Centre and an evening at Eat Street. Congratulations students on an outstanding effort! Thank you to the directors of each group for their tireless efforts in developing the students’ musicianship and performance skills.  Many thanks to staff members Mrs Stitt, Mrs Doolan, Mrs Drake, Mr Fisher and Ms Packer for their caring, supportive and supervisory roles throughout the four- day musical adventure. Grateful thanks to Sr Margaret and Mrs Crow for capturing all our musical moments on video and camera. Many thanks to the parents who supported our students and the bus drivers for transporting us safely to and from the festival.
