Unplugged – IMPACT

I’ve done so many music intensive programmes over the past 4 months of school than I probably have EVER done in my whole life, but those hours of practicing pieces and ridiculous, last-minute changes aren’t going to stop me.

Wilde Victorian Characters – Are They the Real Deal?

Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest” is written with much humour intwined in the works as possible. It was written in the Victorian times, and Wilde wanted to find ways to subtly poke fun at their strict society. My favourite line from Act 1, said by Algernon is: “The only way to behave to…
