It’s Showtime! – Residency

In this two-day residency, eight classes work closely with singer-songwriter Jack Grunsky to prepare and present a concert. Each class works on a song and activity prior to Jack’s arrival and rehearses with him throughout the first day. On the second day, Jack brings the groups together for a school performance that is repeated for friends and families in the evening.

Songs in Action – Performance

Right from the ‘get go’ Jack will have the audience singing along, clapping their hands and putting big smiles into their hearts. Jack’s songs tell stories and open windows to the world taking kids on magical musical journeys in their imaginations with his colourful palette of musical styles and instruments.
