  •  Combined Schools Choir: For three terms, close to 1,600 young people in Years 5-7 from 65 Catholic Primary Schools rehearse on a weekly basis within their own school Music Program to produce an hour’s material by memory! From here they are grouped into four 400-voice combined school's choirs ready to perform on a selected evening.
  • Secondary Boys Vocal Ensemble: Students from our Secondary Schools are selected to participate in the Festival to sing tenor & bass harmonies along with the Primary Schools Massed Choir during sections of the program.
  • Festival String Ensemble: A select group of secondary students are invited to accompany the Primary Schools Massed Choir.
  • Support & Foyer Acts: Each evening’s performance consists of a variety of solo, duet and small & large ensemble acts who are auditioned from within both our Primary and Secondary stream. These acts perform throughout the evening interspersed between the choral sections, as well as providing foyer entertainment prior to the concert.
  • Student Comperes: Auditions are held for four students in Years 7 & 8 to host an evening performance each with a Principal or Deputy Principal compere. These students work together with their adult compere across a series of workshops and individual sessions, and are coached in public speaking skills.
