Students from NSW Government schools have been attending State Music Camps for more than 60 years. Talented music students join together for one week each year to receive expert tutelage and develop their performance skills. Participants rehearse and perform high quality repertoire culminating in a concert for families and friends on the final night of the camp.
Musical activities at camp include participation in a major ensemble (symphony orchestra, symphonic bands, vocal ensembles, rock band and saxophone ensemble) as well as a number of elective ensembles and activities. Elective activities include brass and woodwind ensembles, stage band, jazz improvisation, composition, music technology, music theatre, music and movement.
The dates for State Music Camps this year are as follows:
State Senior Music Camp: Sunday 15 June – Friday 20 June 2014
State Junior Music Camp: Sunday 13 July – Friday 18 July 2014
