As the Clock counted down for the beginning of the Ablaze concert in Shepparton, 600 grade five and six students from the Goulburn Valley area joined in the countdown, shouting out the numbers, 5..4..3..2..1. before erupting into thunderous applause.

Loud music with a heavy rock beat rang out across the auditorium as coloured beams of light streamed across the stage, moving from side to side.
