2018 Festival of Music Concert Series

Festival of Music

Sep 18 - Sep 28

Festival Theatre


Primary School Music Festival Choirs will perform over 12 concerts at the Adelaide Festival Theatre from September 18 – 28.  Tickets on sale from BASS (from 6 August).


The Festival of Music is a school based music education program brought to you by the SA Public Primary Schools’ Music Society and the Department for Education.

With its genesis in 1891 as the Thousand Voice Choir, our program has been an integral part of South Australian life and stands as an official State Icon.  The program reaches thousands of primary and secondary children annually and allows children opportunities to perform at prestigious venues, such as the Adelaide Festival Theatre.


There are Festival Choirs in over 300 schools across South Australia, as well as three Orchestras and Performance Troupes in metropolitan Adelaide.


​Primary students also have performance opportunities as soloistshosts or as part of the South Australian Public Primary Schools (SAPPS) Choir, our showpiece choir which provides choral extension to auditioned students.


Both primary and secondary students can also audition to participate in the Orchestra or to perform as an Assisting Artist.  Foyer Concerts are also a great way for student groups to perform.


We embrace Australia’s diverse cultural wealth, promote social equity by providing access to all public primary school students and foster the acquisition of skills and well being to students in our program.


Our next Adelaide Festival is to be held between the 18th and 28th of September 2018.  It will be our 123rd series and our 127th year since inception.  Regional festivals occur at various locations in South Australia from July through to November.
