TGS Success at Toowoomba Eisteddfod

Toowoomba Grammar School has enjoyed plenty of success at the Toowoomba Eisteddfod last week.

The Junior School Orchestra won the Primary Orchestra section for the fourth year in a row.

The Junior School Brass Ensemble also took out the Primary Brass Specialist Section, while the TGS Chamber Winds won the Primary Chamber Ensemble.

The Senior School results were just as impressive; the Big Band won the Open Stage Band, three separate Saxophone groups each won their divisions and the Vivace Quartet took out the Year 12 and Under Chamber Music Ensemble.

Thank you to Natalie Otto, Jayne Davidson, Kellie Dixon, David Sandford, Melissa Buchholz, Gavin McKenzie, Elizabeth Crook, Teresa Brix, Laura Chegwidden, Josh Meppem and Steve Beezley along with all the other staff and parents associated with the TGS music program for the commitment and dedication you give to these students.
