Pacifica Beats took place at Sacred Heart College and the Rockquest Regional finals the following week at the Opera house.K.O.A and M4 took out first and third place for Pacifica beats respectively and are now in the position where they can apply via video to be at the nationals. At Rockquest, Fusion won the award for the best original song and Sefa from K.O.A won the best musician in the region and K.O.A took 3rd place. The bands composed original songs and represented our school and Performing Arts department with pride. Congratulations to their success and we look forward to seeing them again next year!
