2023 Music Festival


2023 Music Festival »

“A world class event and an outstanding success”

On Sunday 13 August, over 350 Year 7-12 music students and staff from 30 HICES Schools came together for 4 days of music making and fun at The Tops in Stanwell Tops, culminating in the Festival Concert at Sydney Town Hall on Wednesday 16 August. 

The annual festival gives music students an opportunity to perform repertoire that might not otherwise be available to them through their individual schools. With a range of ensembles such as Concert Band, Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Vocal Ensemble, Chorale, String Ensemble and Symphony Orchestra, students were able to share their knowledge and previous experiences with new friends while growing into better musicians.

This year students had the opportunity to work with world class conductors Dr Michael Bradshaw, Conservatorium High School and Mr James Pensini, Sydney Youth Orchestras. 

The experiences and friendships gained will hopefully stay with these students for life. We look forward to the next Festival which will be held for students Years 5-8 and Jazz Academy for students in Years 9-12 in August 2024.
