Sarah carries home awards

AT THE recent Gympie Eisteddfod Sarah Thomas performed at an outstanding level.

A Year 7 student at James Nash State High School, Sarah took part in various sections including string ensemble, small instrument ensemble, folk song, musical theatre, mime, prepared prose reading and verse speaking (to name a few), taking out an array of placements.

After winning many sections, Sarah was all smiles that her dedication and practice paid off. Sarah collected two trophies: Most Promising Female Vocalist (14yrs and under) and Most Promising String Player (14 yrs and under).

Sarah is also a member of the James Nash Strings and Lark Ensemble, both of which gained first places in the String Orchestra, large and small sections. It has been a rewarding time for Sarah with confirmation of another outstanding achievement. She has been selected to be part of the Queensland Conservatorium State Honours Ensemble Program for 2016. This is a statewide ensemble with students gathering in Brisbane in early October for intensive rehearsals and performances under the direction of some of the State's best Music Educators.
