Discipline Areas - Performing Arts

Performance Opportunities

The Shelford Music Faculty provides student performance opportunities at music concerts, Chapel services, assemblies, competitions, AMEB examinations, School functions and Open Days, as well as performances in the local community.

Concert Practice Recitals and Music Concerts are held in Terms 1, 2 and 3. The Practice Recitals are designed to give 'beginner' music students performance experience in an informal setting. The Music Concerts are an opportunity for the more experienced performer to refine her craft in a public setting.

House Performing Arts

Each year students participate in House Performing Arts - creating a performance piece on a given theme. Students are independently responsible for all aspects of the production - music, dance, drama, script, lighting, scenery and stage design. In the Junior School, students participate in a similar program bi-annually.


The Junior School and Senior School present a musical in alternate years. This allows for more flexibility to pursue other creative projects, eg. making a school CD or commissioned projects.
