PASA is very excited about showcasing Glennie’s outstanding musicians at the JazzFest on Sunday, 16 August from 2:00pm to 5:00pm in the Junior Years Courtyard. Featuring the Glennie Jazz Ensemble and Big Band, Junior School Music Teacher, Mr Finlay on trumpet, Janelle Fletcher and the Toowoomba Grammar School R ‘n B Band it is sure to be a great festival of music..
We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our Glennie families and thank our major sponsors Clifford Gouldson Lawyers, Struxi, Avis and Replica Furniture.
We also thank Michael Oo from Two Moos for coordinating the charcuterie platters available for pre-order from GOSS. The platters will feature wood fire artisan breads from Rose Newberry of Baker’s Duck and traditional smoked and cured meats as well as a triple washed-rind Brie from Sonja and Matt Wentzel of Toni’s Meats.
A raffle on the day will include two designer cushions from Jenni Tomlinson of Lanes Interiors (a Glennie Old girl) and a high bar table, stools, lamp and print from Replica Furniture.
A wonderful group of helpers is working some homemade magic to produce a range of heart-warming soups to purchase on the day.
Families will be treated to a relaxed afternoon of great food, drink and music.
All funds raised from this event will go to purchasing a ‘class set’ of xylophones for the class music programme at the Junior School.
Tickets are available from GOSS.
Put on your dancing shoes, rug up and bring a blanket!
Tune in to ABC Radio next Monday!
Next Monday, 10 August, some members of our Glennie Jazz ensemble will be performing live on ABC radio from 7:00am to promote our upcoming JazzFest performance on 16 August.
