Cornet player Emily Sullivan (Year 9) has been selected for the 2020 National Secondary Schools Brass Band (North Island) which will be assembling in Taupo during the September school holidays for a week of rehearsals and concerts.
Students represent their high schools rather than their local bands, so Westlake music is well represented with an additional two players from Westlake Boys. She is looking forward to getting to know other players from around the North Island and growing as a musician. Emily has played the cornet for 8 years and everyone in her family plays an instrument and is involved in bands.
Emily is also a member of three Westlake Premier ensembles: Symphony Orchestra, Concert Band and Cantare Choir, which is an excellent achievement in Year 9.
