The closing concert for the 30th annual Performing Arts Festival for Catholic Schools and Colleges celebrates the end of another fantastic year of performing arts in WA Catholic primary and secondary schools. The concert features music, dance and drama items which performed well in the festival.

This song, sung in part in Noongar language, is the Senior PALS project for 2019 and will be performed by the PALS Massed Choir, comprised of 100 vocalists from Lavalla and Marcellin Campuses.
The choir will sing in collaboration with Madjitil Moorna Choir, accompanied by professional musicians, Susan Bluck (pianist) who wrote and arranged the music for the song, James Webb (didgeridoo player) and Kobi Morrison (guitarist).This song has been professionally recorded and will be promoted by the Catholic Education Office – Aboriginal Education Improvement Team, for use within Whadjuk Country schools.
The College will also be accepting the Australian Catholic Superannuation and Retirement Fund Shield for the College’s 2019 drama production of “Masquerade”. Tickets for the Closing Concert are available on the Perth Concert Hall website.
