Broken Hill High School students are promising something special at their Evening Performance next week.
Head teacher of the Arts Department, Clark Barrett, said the students had all been working hard.
“Our music teacher Dillon Lefoe has revitalised the music program,” Mr Barrett said.
“The students have caught his enthusiasm.”
Mr Barrett said he was pleasantly surprised last year when the students performed some of the more modern songs.
“I had never heard Ed Sheeran before but hearing it at the performance, I went and put his songs on my play list,” he said.
“The students bring the songs alive - some of their versions are better than the originals.”
Mr Barrett said the standard of music was very high.
“Last year it was well attended. It’s a wonderful night,” he said.
“We get a lot of buzz and positive comments.”
The students who will be performing on the evening are Connor Gentle, Frazer Gentle and Hannah Schofield.
“We will be performing ‘Self-Esteem’ by Offspring and doing Michael Jackson’s “Beat It”,” Connor said.
“We have been practicing all term for it,” Frazer said.
“It’s going to be awesome.”
Hannah said there would be solo performances and group performances.
The show will be held at the school hall and it costs $5 a ticket. Tickets are being sold at the school office and on the night. Light snacks will be available.
