Nepean School Band Visit

What a fantastic way to start the week with the sound of a 50 student band from Nepean College!

Students thoroughly enjoyed listening to the music and interacting in the one hour program.

It seems many students have been inspired to learn an instrument after listening to the awesome sound and feeling that a band can create.
