Catholic Schools Music Festival Choir Information

Holy Family Catholic School




The Festival Choir is being part of an exciting, once in a life time experience. It is a significant commitment with a very rewarding outcome.

Rehearsals are held on Monday’s from either 1.30 – 2.10pm or 2.10 – 2.50pm depending on the section your child sings in.

It is expected that students will participate in ALL rehearsals and performances during the year, which may include:

  • The Catholic Schools Music Festival
  • Participation in school concerts/assemblies
  • Participation in any other school performances as required (Spring Fair, Sports Day) etc.

The songs are prepared and arranged specifically for Upper Primary children by the Catholic Schools Music Festival Committee. They vary in style and difficulty but overall comprise a demanding selection of genuine choir work.  As such, the choir should not be seen as an easy option, but should be considered with the same commitment as learning an instrument or being involved in a sporting team.


This is an annual event showcasing hundreds of Catholic primary school children, held over four nights at the Festival Theatre.

 In 2020 our choir will be asked to sing on ONE of the following concert nights from Mon 14 – Thurs 17 September inclusive (the exact date is unknown until Term 3).

Students MUST be able to attend a rehearsal at the Festival Theatre on the morning of their performance.

Dear Families,

After studying the recorder at school, the students are keen to show you what they can do.

For hygiene reasons, each student has been allocated their own recorder and will be responsible for its safe return to school.

Please ensure your child’s recorder is returned to school by Monday 23rdSeptember.Week 10.

(Any unreturned recorders will incur a replacement fee).

I hope you thoroughly enjoy this shared musical experience.

Kind regards,

Sarah Crisp
