The Sydney Secondary College Instrumental Music Program (SSC IMP) combines students across each of the three Sydney Secondary College Campuses of Leichhardt, Balmain, and Blackwattle Bay. The program consists of four Wind Bands, three Jazz Bands and a String Orchestra with many students participating in multiple ensembles. The ensembles rehearse once a week before school and all ensembles involve students from multiple campuses who are bussed back to their home campus each morning after rehearsal.
SSC IMP ensembles perform regularly throughout the year and all students participate in the following whole of program events: the ONE Concert (Term 1), Music Camp & Concert (Term 2), Verbrugghen Hall Showcase (Term 3) and the End of Year Concert (Term 4).
We are proud to share that the SSC IMP was also featured in the Department of Educations News highlights as a 'Mind-blowingly excellent success!'. Read the full article here: https://education.nsw.gov.au/news/latest-news/mind-blowingly-excellent-showcase-a-spectacular-success-
Movement throughout the program is merit-based and students are invited each year to audition for placement in upper ensembles. SSC IMP ensembles regularly achieve top awards at the annual Australian School Band and Orchestra Festival and many students extend themselves by being involved in the state-wide Arts Unit ensemble program.
