Tours & Camps

For the past number of years the Music Department has been involved in annual touring in both primary and secondary as well as rehearsal camps occurring at the beginning of each year.  Commitment to these tours and camps ultimately determines the success of these as well as enabling greater power for the College to negotiate the best costs that they can for families. With the number of tours now occurring in the College on an annual basis, we recognise parents have to make choices based on costs, so we have decided to restructure our touring and camps program to aid the highest enrolment of ensemble students as possible.  This plan is outlined below.

  • Touring for Primary and Secondary Ensembles will now occur in alternate years.
  • Two night off-campus Camps Secondary Ensembles (Primary 1 night) will now occur in the opposite alternate years with an on-campus day camp held in the touring year, just prior to Eisteddfod. (N.B. Junior Singers will attend on the Saturday only and not stay overnight).
  • Major international touring opportunities will exist every four years. (Giving a full 4 years to raise funds to bring the overall cost of these tours down. Please refer to our 'Music Community' section of our website)
