2020 Performance

Our next Adelaide Festival is to be held between the 31st August and 12th of September 2020. It will be our 125th series and our 129th year since inception. Regional festivals occur at various locations in South Australia from July through to November.

What is the Festival of Music?

The Festival of Music is a school based music education program brought to you by the SA Public Primary Schools' Music Society and the Department for Education.

With its genesis in 1891 as the Thousand Voice Choir, our program has been an integral part of South Australian life and stands as an official State Icon. The program reaches thousands of primary and secondary children annually and allows children opportunities to perform at prestigious venues, such as the Adelaide Festival Theatre.

There are Festival Choirs in over 300 schools across South Australia, as well as three Orchestras and Performance Troupes in metropolitan Adelaide.

Primary students also have performance opportunities as soloists, hosts or as part of the South Australian Public Primary Schools (SAPPS) Choir, our showpiece choir which provides choral extension to auditioned students. Both primary and secondary students can also audition to participate in the Orchestra or to perform as a Guest Artist. Foyer Concerts are also a great way for student groups to perform.
