The Central Coast Choral Festival is back at The Art House in Wyong this year and will feature music by Australian composer Katherine Ruhl, in this, the Festival's 20th Anniversary.
The combined choral event will involve over 600 students from 30 NSW public schools across the Central Coast over three nights. We have been working hard making sure we have a quality performance.
After COVID, we were itching to perform again. Many of our students have not been able to showcase their talent on such a professional stage and cannot wait to get there.
In 2002, founder of the Central Coast Choral Festival, Karen Morrow, saw that there were plenty of dance opportunities for students on the Central Coast but noticed a lack of places to showcase our talented choirs. She 'wanted to continue the choral traditions that many students and teachers had in Sydney.'
The first of the biennial concerts was held at Mingara Recreational Club in 2003 and continued there until recently, in 2017, moved to The Art House. The Art House 'provides an opportunity for students to perform on a professional stage with sound and lighting,' says Karen. Many of our students go on to perform as soloists, in bands and in musicals for many years to come. Parents and teachers love to watch their students shine on stage and make new friends.
The shows will feature 13 songs performed by massed choirs and individual performers who have auditioned to showcase their talent.
