Performing Arts Festival for Catholic Schools and Colleges

Performing Arts Festival Newman College


Entries for the Performing Arts Festival are now open. The Festival runs throughout August and is great opportunity for students to represent Newman College in the Arts. Many of the College’s vocal, instrumental and dance ensembles will be entered in the Festival, however, there are opportunities for students in Years 4-12 to perform solo and in small groups. Performance are occurring live this year (subject to COVID-rules), however video performances will be accepted (fees apply). Please note that students become ineligible for an award if choosing to record their item. If you would like your child to participate in a solo/duet music item, please register your interest with your child’s instrumental/vocal tutor. If your child learns privately, please email the Coordinator of Music with the following details: Performer/s names, Year level/s, Instrument/s, Item Name (one item/performance only), Composer and Arranger, and Item Duration. The College will cover the cost of Festival entrance fees, however, if you child withdraws, a fee of $17 will be charged.

Vocal students are required to perform either with a live accompanist or sing acapella as the Festival does not accept backing tracks. Accompaniment is recommended. Fees apply: approximately $100 (incl. 1 rehearsal, practice backing track provided and performance).

Entries are due by Monday 3 May. Sheet music must be supplied with child’s name clearly marked by Monday 17 May.
