The West Australian Government Schools Music Society has a proud history of music education and quality performance at world class venues.
We thank the Principals, teachers, their school communities and most importantly our students for their exciting and stunning celebration of music.
In this exceptional time, we are aware of the needs of schools and their communities.
We need to stay as one and continue to celebrate music and our student’s artistic skills.
Following the announcement by the Prime Minister the Crown Theatre and the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre will be closed until further notice. While Crown and Mandurah concerts will not be held this year let us stay joined through music.
Stay safe everyone and stay in touch with us on our website wagsms.org.au which will keep you informed over time.
We are all in this together and music is part of us.
The WA Government Music Society was founded in 1929 with the object: To foster Music Education in Government Schools of Western Australia and to engage in such activities as will help to achieve this purpose.
The Society ran Concerts in High School Halls for many years until 2001 when it moved the venue to Crown Theatre (formerly Burswood) and Mandurah Performing Arts Centre.
Over recent years it has conducted seven or eight concerts annually with participation from about 100 schools, over 5000 performers and audiences totalling 10,000 people.
Each Concert showcases a variety of school performances and solo acts that provides a snapshot of the amazing talent in public schools.
The involvement of so many talented West Australian children in these concerts certainly justifies the effort.
