2016 will mark the 28th Annual Catholic Schools Music Festival, with over 2000 students representing approximately 80 Catholic Schools who perform throughout the four evenings of the festival.
The music focus this year is both joyful and fun; creating a vibrant atmosphere with songs mainly selected from the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s.
Each evening of the Music Festival comprises a carefully crafted medley of our talented youth; encompassing a 400-voice Combined Schools Upper Primary Choir accompanied by a Secondary Girls Vocal Ensemble and a Secondary Boys Vocal Ensemble providing a rich baritone element. The arrangements of the choral songs involve soloists chosen by audition, and are complemented by selected secondary students in both the Festival String Ensemble and Festival Rhythm Section.
A variety of Support Acts selected by audition comprising solo, duet and ensemble items provide entertainment throughout the evening both on stage interspersed throughout the choral program and as foyer entertainment prior to the concert.
The 2016 Music Festival dates are 26, 27, 28, 29 September, 7.30pm in the Festival Theatre at the Adelaide Festival Centre.
