Vocal Ensembles

Activities for this program currently have to adhere to current DoE COVID-19 restrictions. Link to Department of Education latest information on COVID-19.

The commencement of the 2021 vocal ensembles program will be contingent on advice provided by the NSW Department of Education in consultation with NSW Health.

The Arts Unit offers a wide range opportunities for talented school-aged vocalists to extend their vocal and performance skills. Rehearsals are led by a team of talented and enthusiastic conductors and tutors, teachers, and industry professionals.

Weekly Ensembles

Applications are now closed for the 2021 Vocal Ensembles.


Please note that auditions for the NSW Public Schools Vocal Ensembles are being held so that these valuable activities can commence if and when NSW Health revises current advice (as at 30 October 2020) that:

  • singing in choral settings is a high-risk activity
  • a maximum of five people may sing in a group following distancing guidelines.

The 2021 vocal ensembles program will not commence until NSW Health advice permits.

The NSW Public Schools Junior and Senior Singers are two groups of outstanding student singers from Years 4-12. Participation in the two ensembles is by audition and they rehearse weekly in Sydney.


State Ensembles

The State Choir provides opportunities for talented students to rehearse and perform challenging choral repertoire in a State ensemble under the direction of  professional choral conductors. Open to government school students in Years 8 to 12 from across NSW.
