The Bellingen Fine Music Festival congratulates Bellingen High School and Bellingen Youth Orchestra members Blaise Borrer and Meagan Davis for coming THIRD and FIFTH respectively in the top five in NSW for Music in the HSC exams. An amazing result for our small town of 5,000.
Congratulations also to our incredible Annie Phelan (Head Teacher CAPA and Music Director of the BYO) and all the music teachers, tutors and fellow students who together created a learning environment nurturing such accomplishments.
We are pleased that through our annual Bellingen Fine Music Festival Music-By-Youth Project we have made a small contribution to this amazing outcome. Megan had her HSC Music composition performed by the Acacia Quartet and recorded for submission under this project and Blaise participated in the project Composer Slam.
