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 totaling 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.
