Thomas Gray (Year 9) finalist in Queensland wide music competition

Townsville Grammar School student, Thomas Gray, has been selected as a finalist in the Queensland Music Festival Film-scoring competition, ScoreIT!

The Year 9 student is the only finalist from North Queensland in any section and only one of just four finalists from across Queensland in the Junior (Year 7-10) section.

Score IT! is a state-wide film-scoring competition open to all secondary school students in Queensland. The competition challenges young composers to create an original composition to accompany a short film produced by Griffith Film School.

To enter, students must create a soundtrack using instruments of their choice. Entrants are judged by an expert panel including Katie Noonan and award-winning screen composer and orchestrator, Cameron Patrick, (known for orchestrating films including Spider-Man: Homecoming) as well as industry leaders from Griffith Film School, Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University and Queensland School of Film and TV.

Thomas has been invited to travel to Brisbane in July for a number of composition workshops and masterclasses led by senior lecturers from the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, and also take part in a half day workshop with top video and digital school, Queensland School of Film and TV.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, students from Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University will perform the winning composition from the open Year 7-12 category.
