With many rounds of auditions, a fast turnaround for learning pieces and difficult material, it is only the best of musicians in the Hunter region that earn a place in the orchestra.

Alex Hall is a year twelve student from Medowie who has rightfully earned his place as a keyboard player in the show.

Alex was involved in the orchestra in 2018 and 2019 and was supposed to be a member in 2020 before the show was cancelled due to COVID-19.

This year will be Alex’s final year, and he’s sending it off with a bang.

“This year’s show is being put together really quickly, it’s definitely taken some time to get used to a different format of the show,” Alex told News Of The Area

Under the direction of Dan Wilson, the music team is a combination of the best vocals and instrumentalists in the Hunter Region, with every member of the team held to a high standard.

Alex discussed this environment.

“My favourite part of the show is having the enjoyment of working together with others in such a like minded environment,” he said.

“Everyone shares the same drive for music and I just love it,” Alex added.

Alex has always loved playing piano and taught himself from the age of five before getting lessons to formalise his training.

From taking his music HSC exams in year ten to completing eight grades of AMEB exams, performances for his school, accompanying others in their HSC exams and being involved in Star Struck, it is clear that Alex is one of the hardest working musicians Medowie has ever seen.

Congratulations on all your success, and best of luck with the run of Star Struck shows.
