This week, YCIS had special guests as Australian musician, Scott Darlow, and his band visited all four campuses, taking part in music classes and performing for students during assemblies. Darlow is an Aboriginal singer and songwriter, guitarist, and didgeridoo player. In addition to year level performances, several music classes had the opportunity to have a small, more personal concert where they were able to ask questions about the band, their Australian aboriginal roots, and the didgeridoo. Many students had wonderful enquiries about the band’s instruments, which included a 12-string guitar and other acoustic instruments.
