Music Workshop

During 7-8 May the Ōtūmoetai College Music Department held a workshop for all their extra-curricular groups. 

This involved students working with mentors such as Jeremy Redmore from Midnight Youth, Joel Shadbolt from LAB, Luke Thompson, and Charlotte Ketel from the Berlin Philharmonic Film Orchestra. 

The workshop ended in a successful concert from these groups who performed brilliantly. We thank them for all their efforts and ongoing commitment.
