Members of the Clarion and Holst Bands who participated in the 55th NSW School Band Festival held at the UNSW on Sunday 24 July, under the direction of Mr Mark Brown.

More than 380 Bands from Primary and Secondary schools participated in this Festival. The performances by Holst and Clarion Bands were judged by Dr Peter Boonshaft, Professor of Music and Graduating Programs from Hofstra University, New York.

Clarion Concert Band received a Silver Award in the Raymond Hanson event.
