St George Girls High School
St George Girls High School is an academically selective girls high school situated in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. We have a thriving music program consisting of over 250 students participating in over 16 large and small performing ensembles. Students are also able to receive instrumental lessons on a broad range of instruments by one of 17 Specialist Music Tutors. Our students regularly engage in a number of performance opportunities, including our annual Gala Music Evening in July and Summer Music Festival in December, as well as concerts and competitions across Sydney including The Arts Unit In Concert, Sydney Eisteddfod, Engadine Music Bandfest, and the NSW Schools Band Festival.
For the 2019 Rhapsody Rotorua we formed a NZ Concert Band, Orchestra, Chamber Strings and Percussion Ensemble. The tour was offered to all students in our Performing Ensembles in Years 7 to 12 across a wide range of instruments, including brass, woodwind, strings, and percussion. We have chosen a mix of classical and contemporary repertoire to connect with our audiences, and allow students to have the most enjoyable time whilst they are performing. One of the highlights of our program is an arrangement of “La Tregenda” by Puccini, and a string arrangement of the hit pop song, “Handclap” from Fitz and Tantrums.
