The Music faculty offers students a range of opportunities to develop and extend their performance skills and experience.
The Concert Band and Flute Ensemble are open to any student learning an appropriate instrument. Placement in the Big Band is determined by the student's ability and the requirements of the band. The Vocal Group is open to all students.
Ensemble members are required to attend rehearsals regularly, to learn and practise their parts and to make every effort to be available for performances, including outside school hours. The ensembles perform at school and community events and competitions.
Students also have the opportunity to participate in district and regional events such as the Arts North Music Festival and the Schools' Spectacular. We also showcase student talent at our annual school musical.
Advanced students are also encouraged to audition for the prestigious ensembles run by the Department of Education Arts Unit – Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Stage Band, Jazz Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra, Millennium Marching Band and the Public Schools Singers. These ensembles offer students the experience of working with outstanding conductors and fellow musicians on a wide range of repertoire.
