Cairns High triumphs at Queensland choral championshops


​The Cairns State High School Chorale has taken home the spoils of triumph at the inaugural Queensland Creative Generations Voice Grand Final.


Travelling to Brisbane this week, the school's premier vocal ensemble wowed audience assembled to witness the outstanding talent and skill of the Chorale under the helm of Mrs Lauren Hannay.


Executive Principal, Christopher Zilm felt privileged to travel with the 60 students from Cairns State High Chorale to Brisbane; "I am so impressed by the dedication of Cairns High students in the whole range of pursuits. The excellence this particular group displayed on stage, in the rehearsal rooms and toward each other was exemplary. Congratulations to all our young people and their supporters for months of hard work and commitment. We have much to be proud of in the school and let's not forget that it was this time last year that the Orchestra brought home the trophy from the biannual Instrumental Fanfare. So much talent!"

Cairns State High’s performance was stand out. From the moment the students walked on to stage, took their positions, and produced the most amazing sound.

Congratulations to Ms Lauren Hannay our Director of Choral music and her expert way of working with students. Mr Zilm said; "We all value your amazing talents and passion and I know the parents, staff and students of the school join me in thanking Lauren for her dedication and commitment to Cairns High. Thank you also to Director of Music, Mrs Lizanne Smith and music teacher, Ms Trish Allan for all her support."

What made the day a great day for Cairns was that Edge Hill State School had also travelled for the Primary Schools final held in the afternoon and they won too!
