What is the Festival of Music?

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 students annually and allows students 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 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.
