The Music Ensembles Program has been running successfully for many years under the direction of our Music Directors who, as well as being excellent teachers, are accomplished musicians. Profiles can be viewed here.
The Music Ensemble groups meet for rehearsals each week, either before or after school (details are available in the Music Ensembles Policies Booklet). Students are required to arrive at least ten minutes prior to rehearsal commencement time. Music stands are stored nearby in our recording studio and some instruments are stored within the room in a purpose built-cupboard.
The Ensembles Program has been involved in the following performance events:
- Jazz at the Pines
- Australian Chinese Community Banquet and Lantern Festival
- Concerts at local Retirement Villages
- Movie Under the Stars
- Sydney Royal Easter Show
- Rotary Inner Wheel Concert
- Pulse Massed Choir at Sydney Opera House
- Inala Fair
- Oakhill Drive Public School Family Fun Day
- Remembrance Day at Lakes of Cherrybrook RV
- Cherrybrook Public School Workshop and Performance
- John Purchase Public School Fair
