Murray Mallee Festival

2023 was the 12th year of the Murray Mallee Regional Choir Festival (MMF) with over 120 students participating in two concerts on October 24th and 25th. The festival gives Year 4 – 6 students from nine schools across the Murray Mallee region an opportunity to perform together at the Murray Bridge Town Hall. They also experience musical performances by student guest artists, including students from Murray Bridge High School and the Instrumental Music Service.

To participate in the MMF, schools pay an annual participation fee. Each school selects a representative to be part of the committee which generally meets once or twice a term to plan the festival, and to assist with the successful running of the workshop, rehearsals and concerts.

The following schools participated in this year’s festival Murray Mallee Festival: Murray Bridge North School, Mypolonga Primary School, Coomandook Area School, Tailem Bend Primary School, Karoonda Area School, Jervois Primary School, Mannum Community College, Murray Bridge South School and Meningie Area School.

Students audition and are selected to be soloists and comperes for both concerts. All schools combined for a cluster rehearsal in September which was led by our conductor, Cathy Miegel, and our accompanist, Peta Davis. Both performance days included a rehearsal followed by the concert in the evening.
