The 2017 Festival of Choral Music is an annual showcase of NSW Public School students in a Combined Choir at the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House. This magnificent series of four concerts (Argyle, Australis, Bennelong and Endeavour) involves hundreds of schools and students from across NSW.
This concert series is one of the core State level arts programs managed by The Arts Unit of the NSW Department of Education. Students and their teachers come together to form Combined Choirs of 700 performers each night. The choirs sing repertoire which is specially composed and arranged for them. The Festival also provides a unique opportunity for schools to access targeted high quality repertoire and professional learning opportunities.
