The Symphony Orchestra and Senior Singers of the NSW Public Schools (Australia) are two of the best ensembles administered by The Arts Unit of the New South Wales Department of Education. Membership of the ensembles is by audition each year. The orchestra is currently comprised of 69 musicians and the choir of 42 singers. Students are generally of high school age (with an average age of 16) and represent a range of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds
The ensembles will tour through the UK and Ireland in January 2018. Apart from Dublin, they also perform in Manchester, London, Limerick and Cork.
However, the concert at the Christ Church Cathedral Dublin will be a very special one because it will be shared with 2 of Dublin's finest youth/student ensembles: RTÉ Cór na nÓg and RIAM Symphony Orchestra.
Come and join the highlight of this tour while listening to a beautiful mix of classical and modern works!
