Music Camps and Tours

An integral part of our Performance Opportunities element includes Camps and Touring experiences within our Ensemble program. These Camps and Tours are focused around developing the musical skills of our students and their relationships with their fellow students and staff.

Music Camps are held in Term One of each year, alternating between Primary and Secondary in a two year rotation. These are held at a local camp site and costs are included within the Co-Curricular Music Levy. The focus of the Music Camp is for the Ensembles to begin the year with a dedicated weekend of rehearsal to improve the music making of individual students and the ensemble as a whole. Students have the opportunity to bond with their fellow Music peers, developing life long friendships through shared Music making.

Domestic Music Tours are held each year, alternating between Primary and Secondary in a two year rotation. The focus of our Music Tours is to travel outside the local community to engage in workshop and performance opportunities and can often include participation in State, National and International Music Festivals and Competitions. Music Tours offer students unique performance experiences in a variety of venues and the opportunity to engage with other musicians in workshops and masterclasses. Relationships are a key component of the Ensemble program and touring gives students the opportunity to strengthen friendships with students and staff through shared musical experiences.

International Touring occurs every four to five years and is centered around accessing unique musical experiences only available outside of Australia. 

Commitment to these tours and camps ultimately determines the success of these as well as enabling greater power for the College to negotiate the best costs that they can for families. Please see below the intended schedule of Music Camps and Tours for future years. The schedule is carefully planned to allow families adequate time to prepare financially for these opportunities and time for fundraising initiatives.
