The Southern Illawarra Music Festival showcases choral groups from public schools between Figtree and Gerringong.  With over 1000 students participating in the festival each year, the festival prides itself on being an inclusive, fun event for students from each of our schools.

Schools work together to perform 9 incredible massed choir items each year adding bright props and funky moves to many of our items. Each school performs 2 individual items selected by their school choir teachers to 'wow' the audience. 


The Southern Illawarra Music Festival will resume in 2023.

Further information will be available at the beginning of Term 1 2023.
