The St Augustine’s Music Department took a group of 105 musicians to the Istrian region of Croatia to take part in music festivals and perform four concerts.

Members of the Junior Choir, Mixed Voice Choir, Senior Choir, Orchestra and Jazz Band had the trip of a lifetime. Highlights of the trip included performing as part of a summer long music festival in the centre of Pula to over a thousand people, singing in St. Euphemia Church to over five hundred people, a concert at the Hotel Delfin which included the whole trombone section playing solos in the swimming pool, a trip to a waterpark, and the Croatian version of Go Ape!

Mr Barron said “It proved to be the best trip yet, all the pupils had the time of their lives. The tour rep who was looking after us said we were the best musical group she has ever had in 15 years of doing the job which is a massive credit to the young people and the school.”
