Mulkadee | Mr Hodgson
17th July 2023
Allow us to introduce Mr Andrew Hodgson, who will be serving as one of the facilitators in this year's Mulkadee event!
Mulkadee, now celebrating its 18th year, is a significant event in the North Queensland Arts calendar, bringing primary and secondary students together for intensive workshops in various artistic disciplines.
Mr Hodgson will lend his expertise as a facilitator of the Concert Band workshops at Mulkadee, where he will focus on guiding and mentoring students in the Lower Brass section. A dedicated teacher here at IPC since 2018, Mr Hodgson brings a wealth of knowledge and experience.
Throughout his musical journey, Mr Hodgson has significantly impacted the North Queensland Region's music community. Renowned for his skills as a Drummer/ Percussionist, he has also showcased his talents as a Tuba player with the Barrier Reef Orchestra, Thuringowa Brass Brand, and German Band. His dedication to the musical arts is evident in his most recent role as the musical director of Ignatius Park College's combined schools' production of Bugsy Malone and his ongoing performances within the Townsville community.
Mr Hodgson's involvement with Mulkadee is not new, having previously participated in the 2018 production of Alice in Wonderland. He brings valuable experience from previous years' events. His passion for teaching and sharing his musical knowledge makes him a great addition to the lineup of industry experts, including the esteemed Mrs Tillakc, who will also be guiding students through various artistic workshops.
The culmination of this incredible program will be an eagerly anticipated performance of Robin Hood at the Townsville Entertainment and Convention Centre on Friday, 21 July. With Mr Andrew Hodgson's involvement and the collective talent of students from the diocese, this year's Mulkadee promises to celebrate the arts like no other.
