The Glenaeon Rudolf Steiner School Jazz Combo will perform live on the main stage at the Castlecrag Community Fair on Sunday 20 October at 1pm.   The band will play a half-hour set including tunes such as Cantaloupe Island, Straight No Chaser, Sol Y Sombra.

Glenaeon’s Head of Music, Mr Christian Lillicrap said he was delighted that students had the opportunity to play for the local community. The music selected will have broad appeal for young and old. The performance is also a celebration of 100 years of Steiner Education in Australia. 

“Glenaeon is the only Steiner High School on Sydney’s North Shore and it has a rich and strong music history. The Music Department at Glenaeon consists of two full-time teachers and 20 instrumental music teachers.  Throughout the school we live into the essence of music; it is an integral part of the curriculum at all age levels. From the fluid, heartfelt singing and movement of early childhood to the conscious discipline of more formal music tuition, music is a core component of our unique education offering,” said Mr Lillicrap.

Head of School, Andrew Hill said, “Music deeply nurtures the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of a growing child. It enriches the learning process of each individual, enlivens the family home, enhances the atmosphere of the classroom and draws together the whole school community – an at the Castlecrag Fair – the whole community. Acquiring the skills and tools for artistic expression offers an opportunity to explore and experience the highest qualities of what it is to be human. Our school fosters musical excellence in all areas – singing, instrumental, performance, and academic.”
