“I would like to acknowledge the students who will be participating in this year’s festival and thank their teachers for their support and guidance.”
CEWA (Catholic Education Western Australia) Deputy Executive Director Wayne Bull.
At the Praise and Worship Liturgy to mark the start of the festival, St Mary’s Cathedral Music Director Jacinta Jakovcevic spoke about her involvement with the festival in previous years, and her love for mentoring young people, especially in the space of sacred music.
“For many years, I was blessed to accompany many of the school choirs, vocal soloists and instrumentalists who took part in the festival and was involved with their preparations, rehearsals and coaching,” she said.
“I think it is very exciting that our young students are encountering and engaging with sacred music and taking pride in singing it,” she added.
The schools that participated in the Secondary Sacred Choral section include Mandurah Catholic College, Trinity College, Holy Cross College, La Salle College, Mercedes College, Sacred Heart College, Newman College, and Aquinas College.
