Tuesday 15 March 2016, Alexandra Secondary College Concert, Alexandra

It was somehow appropriate that, seven years after many of us took refuge in the hall at Alexandra Secondary College on the evening of the 2009 Victorian Bushfires, a subset of Pans on Fire returned there today to play a small concert at the School Assembly (in addition to those in shot below were Rita, Tony, Sarah and Ann Barkla). The band was asked to perform at the Assembly in anticipation of a new steelband starting at the College this year. The signs look promising, with the music teacher having a list after the Assembly of about 20 students who had expressed interest in participating, including several who had previously played in the Buxton Primary School steelband, and some who had played in the original Jammin’ band.
