Brian Gill

Merrimac State High School hosted its third annual Cluster Workshop and Twilight Tunes. This event attracts over 160 students from local primary schools in year 5 and 6 to participate in an all day Instrumental Music workshop and perform an evening concert. This year, the Patron of Music Mr George Ellis attended the workshop and worked with the students. As the conductor for the Australian Symphony Orchestra, his passion and expertise for music was a delightful addition to the day. Mr Ellis personally selected a very small group of students whom he thought were exceptional. Congratulations to Brian Gill.
