The Nhulunbuy Primary School Choir rehearse weekly and are lucky enough to be involved in the BEAT Festival this year. The BEAT Festival is the NT Department of Education’s annual performing arts showcase. It is a large-scale combined schools production led by the NT Music School with the support of the BEAT Foundation, showcasing the great work of our schools. An annual and keenly anticipated event since 1979, the 3 shows in September each year typically feature:
- 300 voice choir
- 25-piece orchestra
- dance groups and other physical performers
- rock bands, soloists and other musical ensembles
- talented vocalists from ages 12 to 18
- a great production featuring great lighting, sound and audio visual content
This year, NPS students will be travelling to Darwin to perform. The students are very excited and have been working hard to learn and perfect the 11-song set list.
