About WA Massed Choir Festival 2019
The WA Massed Choir Festival is a showcase of excellence for our public primary school choirs. This annual sold-out event raises the profile of music in our public primary schools, with 81 primary schools involved in this festival of 9 concerts with over 4600 students involved in this year’s festival.
The festival supports staff and students by providing valuable Professional Learning with experienced choral directors, mentors graduate teachers, supports and encourages the participation of Education Support students and also enriches the school curriculum through choice of repertoire and commissioning of musical works to complement the Australian Curriculum.
Students are given the exciting experience of performing in a massed choir of more than 500 voices, this year singing a medley of rock’n’roll songs by ELVIS, Yothu Yindi’s DJAPANA and David Bowie’s SPACE ODDITY. The festival actively supports Australian composers and arrangers.
