Eric Farrugia reports on the Live Music is Good for You Festival.
Every year our music teachers gather us together to perform at the Royal Melbourne Hospital's 'Live Music is Good for You' Festival in May. This year, all 22 Elwood College students did a great job at revitalizing the hospital community's soul and energies, as music is one of the supreme forces of healing.
From my experience, a lot of stuff sounded great. We had some good material and new compositions. Seeing people's ideas and thoughts and emotions amalgamating into music is a splendid process. My favourite part was seeing the Victorian College of the Arts musicians play. They blew my mind!
