In 2015, Creative Generation - State Schools Onstage (CGEN) will celebrate its eleventh year as Queensland's largest youth performing arts event at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC) with four performances on Friday 17 and Saturday 18 July. Student performers will come together to rehearse items covering a mix of musical genres such as classical, rock, pop, musical theatre, hip hop and jazz.
We expect the 600 dancers, 600 choristers, 65 symphony orchestra members, The James Morrison Creative Generation Big Band, drumline, featured vocalists, massed strings, film and stage crew will range from Prep to Year 12 and will come from more than 100 state schools from around the state.
CGEN aims to mentor and foster the next generation of performers and provides opportunities for them to work with and learn from professional artists. This annual entertainment event has launched the professional careers of many students who have gone on to star in theatre, television and musical productions.
