East of the Ranges Festival

The East of the Ranges Primary Schools' Music Festival is part of the Festival of Music, a much older tradition which commenced in Adelaide in 1891. It was originally called the Thousand Voice Choir and the Festival of Music now stands as an official icon of our state.

The East of the Ranges Festival is one of ten regional festivals and is supported by the South Australian Public (Primary) Schools' Music Society Inc. and the Department for Education. It is held in August with students from seven schools participating from across the mid north. Assisting Artists drawn from schools in the region showcase their talents and add variety to the evening.

Those who participate in music education have their lives enriched and benefit in so many ways. The annual Mid North Primary Schools' Music Festival is a celebration of the success of the excellent music education programs in our schools.

Schools involved: Booleroo Centre District School, Burra Community School, Jamestown Community School, Melrose Primary School, Peterborough Primary School, St Joseph’s School and Orroroo Area School.
