State Junior and Senior Music Camps

Talented music students join together for one week each year to receive expert tutelage and develop their performance skills. Participants rehearse and perform high quality repertoire culminating in a concert for families and friends on the final night of the camp.

Musical activities at camp include participation in a major ensemble (symphony orchestra, symphonic bands, vocal ensembles, rock band and saxophone ensemble) as well as a number of elective ensembles and activities. Elective activities include brass and woodwind ensembles, stage band, jazz improvisation, composition, music technology, music theatre, music and movement.teacher with students

As part of The Arts Unit's support of the Department of Education's Rural and Remote Education blueprint for action, we are excited to be able to offer a Participation Subsidy of $250 to students from rural and remote schools to attend a State Music Camp.

Please note: If interest exceeds available funds, allocation of the Participation Subsidy will be prioritised based on remoteness. Subsidies will be confirmed with acceptance notification.
