Vocal Ensembles

PublishingPageContent

Brisbane State High School has a thriving Vocal Ensembles program which enables students to participate in singing and enjoy musical interaction with other students.

Our ensembles rehearse once a week and perform at competitions, eisteddfods, Creative Generation as well as school events, including Vocal Soiree, Student Leaders’ Induction Ceremony, ANZAC Day Commemorative Ceremony, Foundation Day and Year 12 Graduation. In addition, students are encouraged to participate in our annual Vocal Soiree as soloists and in small vocal ensembles. Vocal Ensembles students enjoy participating in these ensembles and this enhances their musical skills as well. 

For more information about our Vocal Ensembles program, download the Vocal Ensembles Handbook (PDF, 242KB).

From time to time, the type and number of ensembles may vary. The current structure is as follows:

  • Girls Show Choir
    Year 7 – 12 girls vocal ensemble 
  • Bellissima
    Year 7 – 12 experienced girls vocal ensemble
  • Ragazzi
    Year 7 – 12 boys vocal ensemble
  • Chorale
    Experienced mixed boys and girls vocal ensemble. This is a balanced group of selected senior vocalists who perform more advanced, 4-part vocal repertoire.
