On Thursday 29th October, D² were invited to spend the day at Caulfield Grammar as Artists in Residence for the school’s inaugural percussion day and combined schools percussion concert.
Five members of the D² Education Team worked with a very large group of students (up to 60 at any one time) ranging from Grade 3 – 12 throughout the day to help put together a large scale drumline performance.
In addition to our work giving the students at Caulfield an introduction to all things drumline, we were honoured to be invited to perform as featured artists for the combined percussion gala in the evening. This was an excellent opportunity for us to present a range of material including some multi-percussion and marimba ensemble piece in addition to our regular drumline material.
We were honoured to be able to give a number of students from Caulfield and opportunity to conduct and indeed perform as part of the Professional D² Performance Line for the evening.
