Our students break a World Record

On Saturday 13 July, Ms Angela Nieuwenburg, our Music Teacher here at Beenleigh State High took 13 students and parents to Suncorp Stadium to participate in the World's Biggest Orchestra-Guinness Book of Records attempt. QMF Artistic Director and internationally renowned musician, James Morrison, led 7224 musicians in the World’s Biggest Orchestra, beating the previous world record of 6452 set by Vancouver Symphony in 2000.

Musicians young and old performed a medley of songs arranged by James Morrison that started with Waltzing Matilda, Beethoven's Ode to Joy and the grand finale was Queen's We Will Rock You. The official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS challenge was a fantastic experience for our musicians. Congratulations to all members involved.
