What do Hosts do?

Hosts present at Festival of Music concerts held at the Festival Theatre.  They have clear speaking voices, expressive personalities and create a positive rapport with the audience.  
Throughout the year hosts rehearse and film media grabs to help Festival choirs and families know what is happening.  Hosts work as a team throughout Terms 2 and 3 to develop skills in the arts of acting and public speaking.
