Choral Fanfare

Choral Fanfare 2019 is a biennial festival of choirs from Queensland state schools to promote and celebrate school-based choral music programs. The program receives participation from over 10,000 state school students and showcases the outstanding vocal talent of our school students through performance.

Choral Fanfare aims to:

  • promote excellence in choral performance
  • highlight school-based choirs
  • offer students as well as conductors the experience of expert adjudication and feedback
  • provide students and teachers with the opportunity to perform in a music festival with choirs from other state schools.


Choral Fanfare begins with schools nominating to participate in the program. Primary and secondary state school choirs are nominated to participate by their conductor, school teacher or principal.

Nomination for the Choral Fanfare 2019 program is open from 3 December 2018 until 28 February 2019.

Before nominating your choir group/s, please read the full program information in the Choral Fanfare 2019 participation information booklet (PDF, 519KB).
