Vocal Ensembles

​​​Brisbane State High School has a thriving Vocal Music Program which enables students to participate in singing, as well as enjoy musical interaction with other students. 
Our ensembles rehearse once a week and perform at competitions, eisteddfods, Creative Generation and school events such as the Vocal Soirees, School Leaders’ Induction Ceremony, ANZAC Day Commemorative Ceremony, Foundation Day, Awards Ceremony and Year 12 Graduation. In addition, students are encouraged to participate in the Vocal Soirees as soloists and in small vocal ensembles; they enjoy participating in these ensembles and they enhance their musical skills as well. 
From time to time, the type and number of ensembles may vary.  The current structure is as follows:
  • Junior Girls Vocal Ensemble – girls from Year 7 – 9  
  • Senior Girls Vocal Ensemble – girls from Year 10 – 12 
  • Ragazzi – boys from Year 7 – 12
  • Belle Voci – girls and boys from Year 10, 11 and 12. This is a balanced group of selected senior vocalists who perform more advanced, 4-part vocal repertoire.

For more information on vocal ensembles, please see the Vocal Handbook 2018.pdf.
