If you are advancing on your instrument or voice and want to audition to be in a representative group, these applications close at the end of term…..
Applications for an audition to join one of the Representative Groups of the Music festival are now open. The groups are:
- Senior Choir (sing harmony parts and a couple of items)
- Concert Band (wind, brass and percussion)
- Symphony Orchestra (strings, wind, brass and percussion)
The groups perform all three nights of the Festival 24-26 Oct, whereas our school choir is on just one of those nights. The representative groups also have special rehearsals during term 3 and during the Sept holidays.
Applicants have until the last day of Term 1 to apply for an audition…but don’t leave it to the last minute. They usually have over 600 applicants for only about 350 positions, so it is vital that you get your application in before the deadline.
