Local School Student Achieves National Success

Posted on Monday, September 03, 2018

From opening the Coolangatta Christmas Carols in 2017, local Palm Beach Currumbin student Charlie has now received national success playing principal flute with the International Honours Performance Series at the Sydney Opera House.

The five day residential program was held from 18 -23 July where the year 11 student worked with American conductor Jeffery Grogan. From over 12,000 auditions, 225 high school students were chosen worldwide for the concert band, choir and string ensembles. Only three Australians were chosen and Charlie was selected for principal - a huge honour.

Charlie will now represent Palm Beach Currumbin State High School for the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University’s inaugural Australian Honours Ensemble Program from the 4 - 7 October, where she was chosen amongst the best classical musicians by an adjudicating panel.

We would like to congratulate Charlie on her successes and wish her the best of luck moving forward with her music.
