Youth Choir Package

30 June - 9 July 2023  |  $150 per singer *

Information & Registration for Youth Choirs

Are you planning to bring your youth choir to Tasmania in 2023? Registrations for the 2023 Youth Choir Package are now open.

This non-competitive, joy-filled experience offers youth choirs from across the country the opportunity to participate in Australia’s pre-eminent choral festival. Choirs get to sing in a welcoming, inclusive environment to appreciative audiences, meet and sing with like-minded young people and attend special festival events. The opportunity to explore Hobart and Tasmania is also encouraged! 

My ensemble loved the opportunity to meet and talk with the other choirs we performed with, and this personal connection enriched our musical experiences immensely.
