Hazelwood College music department has been busier than usual this year. Not only did the annual musical take place recently but over the winter months the students were in school during holidays and weekends producing the 3rd CD of talent from the school.
“Inspirations” is a triple album showcasing the wide variety of musical talent from both past and present students of the school.
The CD will be launched on Friday 17th May 2019 with a variety show by past student Darren Roche from the critically acclaimed Irish band “Moxie” before he departs on a summer tour of Uk, USA and Ireland
