We were thrilled to host Channel 7’s Sunrise for a special live cross from AIM Sydney’s campus to celebrate Make Music Day. Hosted by Channel 7’s Sam Mac, the breakfast show featured live performances and interviews with our talented Bachelor of Music (Contemporary) students, including 2030 Records (our student-run record label) signing Gia Darcy. Watch a segment of the show below.
Sunrise filming began before dawn, with our performers and several students assembled to bring the crowd energy to each of the performances broadcast on live television. It was an early day but the electricity was in the air – this was an incredible opportunity for us to showcase what brilliant performers we have at AIM and we were all excited to see AIM on-screen.
First to perform on Sunrise was an AIM band featuring Amy Hassarati, Evie Corradin, Rosie Vicich and Sheren Bhakti. They did a stunning rendition of Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start.” Next up, we moved to AIM’s beautiful Sydney Harbour-facing rooftop to watch the sunrise.
As the sun came up, we were graced by the talents of Gia Darcy, who performed her original song accompanied by guitarist Max Rook. To conclude the day’s performances, Alicia Varas performed her original love song on our Amphitheatre stage. There was a magic moment when we got to meet the subject of her song, her partner and fellow AIM classmate.
Make Music Day is held 21 June and we can’t wait to see and hear all of the music created as part of this world wide celebration. For more information on getting involved with Make Music Day, visit here.
