A group of 12 talented Cobar High School students who are part of the ‘Cobar Maxed Out Company’ recently travelled to Baradine for the Moorambilla choir rehearsals.
The students participated in vocal rehearsals for the choir, percussion, art and dance performances over the five day camp.
The trip was partly funded by the Cobar Arts Council, who raised $600 to cover the costs of the students’ travel.
Art’s council member and local musician Shane Josephson said the arts council was happy to help out and support the up and coming artists of Cobar.
“The Cobar Arts Council members worked hard over the last few months running raffles and other fundraisers to help support the students financially.
“The next camp which the students will be going to will be in September, which will be followed by a concert in Dubbo to celebrate 10 years of the Moorambilla Voices program,” Mr Josephson said.
He said the Cobar High School students will be joined by 60 other students from high schools in the western district to form the Maxed Out Company.
“Maxed Out Company, the Moorambilla Boys and Girls Choir (which consist of over 200 primary school students), Taikoz and ensembles from Sydney will come together after rehearsing to perform an amazing concert with a spectacular artwork back drop and fire display finale,” Mr Josephson said.
