Opera House bound



WILLIAM Bergan, 11, doesn't need treats to make him practice his trombone. William, of Kremnos, learnt to play the trumpet and trombone through South Grafton Public School's band and school music tutor.

"First they gave me the opportunity to play, then they encour- age you to play ? the band also gets special treats," he said. "I haven't had private lessons."

William was selected to perform in the NSW State Junior Wind Band at the Sydney Opera House on June 27 and 28.

"Yeah, I'm devoted to it, I love playing," William said.
