CPA Band 1

The Catholic Performing Arts festival is over for another year and Frayne really did themselves proud. Students from across both campuses put in their best efforts to achieve some amazing results; which of course would not have been possible without the unwavering support of staff at the College. Parents attended a variety of performances to encourage their children and it was truly a whole College effort to bring the very best in performing arts to the stage. Everyone at Frayne who was involved in the CPA should be proud of what they have achieved in 2017.

It was so very unfortunate that we did not come away with the shield this year, especially considering the comments received truly showed the depth of talent at the College. Here’s what the adjudicator had to say about our Junior School Choir:


Night and Day: What an easy, sweet sound! Beautiful blend of harmonies and the percussion was executed precisely. A fine performance.

Kusimama: A wonderful, traditional African song. It was full of vitality, warmth, rhythm and percussive effects. A strong blended sound. Congratulations! Thank you.


I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music. - Billy Joel
