Music Festival 2021

Music Festival 2021


We are excited to announce that auditions for items performed in the first half of the Music Festival will be conducted via video submission in 2021. Students are invited to submit their audition by 5pm on Monday 1 February 2021 via a link that will be published on the Music Festival 2021 Canvas Page. Stay tuned for more information.

In more exciting news, we are also inviting  budding actors to audition a piece for the 2021 Music Festival. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students.

Students are encouraged to read through the criteria in the links below relating to Music, Dance and Drama auditions. Students should contact the relevant Head of Department before the end of term this year to ensure the content of the audition is appropriate and does not breach copyright. It is important that students maintain social distancing while rehearsing and recording.

This year due to the inclusion of Drama, a panel of Loreto Normanhurst staff will review all auditions. The top 10 performances will be selected based on the criteria highlighted in the links below. From there, these 10 audition videos will be sent to an external adjudicator where the top four will be selected. At least one Music item must be included in the top four performances.

Please note, video submissions must be not edited in any way. That is, there should be no professional or app editing  to ensure equality in the  process.

We look forward reviewing the video submissions.
