Saint Stephen’s College Drumline takes out national titles for the third time.
The explosive, high energy Saint Stephen’s College Drumline has taken out top honours at this year’s Australian Percussion Eisteddfod in Brisbane.
In addition to their third national win in four years, the 14-piece ensemble placed first in the 2014 Open A Percussion Ensembles and Drumlines section at the recent Gold Coast Eisteddfod.
Headmaster Jamie Dorrington said the Saint Stephen’s College Drumline was always a crowd pleaser.
“Drumline is made up of the elite drummers at the College aged between 13 and 17. This success on the national stage is confirmation of their spectacular sound and performance skills,” said Mr Dorrington.
“They are a talented, committed and disciplined group of performers who capture the excitement and spirit of the American-style drum corps. We congratulate them on their accomplishments.”
Drumline is part of the College’s dynamic and diverse Performing Arts Programme that provides drummers the opportunity to fine-tune their technique, stage presence and skills.
