Friends of Marcellin Performing Arts

Friends of Marcellin Performing Arts (FOMPA) is a group run by committed volunteers from the Marcellin community. Its mission is to support and promote the college's music, visual, and performing arts programs.

FOMPA provides support to staff and students by running social and fundraising events throughout the year. These include suppers, raffles, decorations, ticket sales, and student breakfasts, among many others. 

All proceeds channel directly into the college programs. In the past, FOMPA has purchased promotional banners for the drama program, music stand banners, instrument covers, and a washing machine and dryer for the new theatre studies facility. 

Most importantly, FOMPA is dedicated to encouraging and fostering young talent.

Marcellin Annual Gala Ball Stage Band Performance

On Saturday August 23rd, as our wonderful community of glammed up parents arrived dressed to impress, our Marcellin Stage Band were also taking centre stage (literally!).

The boys in the band, ably led by Matthew Thomas and Chris Bevens entertained our parents with some fantastic music, while the parents mingled and chatted.  The boys set a great mood for the evening.

Year 8 Siena Music Incursion

On the 13th of August the Year 8 boys involved in Marcellin College’s Instrumental Classroom Music program played host to the Girls from Siena College’s Concert Band and String Orchestra. The day was designed to give the boys an authentic musical experience outside their usual classroom setting and the opportunity to perform to their parents and friends. For some this would be the last opportunity to perform and engage in an ensemble and the music staff felt that this incursion was a fantastic opportunity to give our boys a wonderful experience to remember Marcellin College music by.
