Cantabile Music Festival
The Cantabile Music Festival is an annual event that celebrates the musical achievements of over 1000 students from public schools throughout Metropolitan South, Regional South and beyond.
The festival showcases the choral skills of 700 primary school students from Years 3 to 6 who sing together as part of the festival’s Combined Primary School Choir. It highlights the musical talents of many primary and secondary students who perform in the orchestras, stage bands, small group items, ensembles or as accompanists to the choir. The festival’s repertoire reflects a wide range of genres ranging from classical to contemporary musical pieces.
Schools accepted into the choral component of the festival receive all music and professional development.
Successful schools are required to attend a teacher workshop to learn the repertoire for the concert.
The workshop will be held in Term 2 from 1 pm to 4 pm.
