Festivals and concerts

The annual Opus concert features performances of outstanding instrumental and choral music from primary and secondary public school music students.

Festivals are run by professional associations and supported by the Department of Education. They provide a valuable opportunity for both primary and secondary school ensembles to perform for their peers, to receive feedback from expert adjudicators, and to hear ensembles from other schools perform.
