Kurwongbah Senior Singers Shine Bright

Excitement is in the air as the prestigious Choral Fanfare program returns to the stage, bringing together talented young voices from primary and secondary schools across Queensland.

Among the ten outstanding choirs selected for this year's state final, the Kurwongbah Senior Singers from Kurwongbah State School have secured a well-deserved spot, setting the stage for a thrilling performance on Tuesday, August 22 at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University.

The biennial Choral Fanfare program, which commenced in 2001, has become a cornerstone of musical education for students, providing a unique opportunity for performance experience, fostering teamwork skills, and gaining recognition for their talents. This year's event was exceptional, marking the first time since 2019 that the state final will be held live, showcasing the true essence of choral harmony and camaraderie.

Shane King, State Member for Kurwongbah, congratulated everyone in the Kurwongbah State School community, including students, staff, and families, for contributing to this fantastic achievement, wishing all finalists the best of luck for their closing performances and acknowledging the hard work and commitment that goes into such musical endeavours.

Over 10,000 students representing 213 choirs participated in regional festivals held throughout Queensland. These festivals served as platforms for students to gain valuable experience, receive constructive feedback from professional adjudicators, and witness the magic of their peers' performances.

"The Kurwongbah State School community is extremely proud of our Kurwongbah Senior Singers' selection as state finalists for the 2023 Choral Fanfare," said Leanne Odorico, Principal of Kurwongbah State School.

"The students have put in many hours of practice and commitment to their choral development with the support of Mrs Curcuruto, music teacher, and Mr Martin, accompanist. Our students thoroughly enjoy sharing their love of singing and performance."

Education Minister Grace Grace commended all 213 choirs that participated in the regional festivals, recognising Queensland State Schools' exceptional reputation in music and the dedication to school-based choral music programs.

Tickets for the Fanfare 2023 primary and secondary state final concert are now available online through QTIX, and music enthusiasts are encouraged to secure their seats early to witness the remarkable talent displayed by Queensland's young choral artists.

The state final promises to be an awe-inspiring event, uniting young voices in harmony and celebrating the power of music education.
