The Arts Unit is once again collaborating with The Idea of North to promote choral singing in NSW Public Secondary Schools.
Registrations are now open.
The festival is not a competition or an eisteddfod, but a celebration of the joys of singing. The day will begin with a workshop for all students with members of The Idea of North. Each school ensemble will than have the opportunity to perform 2 solo items and receive feedback from The Idea of North. The festival will end with a concert open to the public, where selected items from the day will be performed alongside performances from The Idea of North.
The 2016 Secondary Schools Vocal Festival will be held on Tuesday 25 October at Newtown High School of the Performing Arts in Sydney.
