At Mosman High music is an exciting and integral part of many students’ lives. The Music Ensemble Program is open to EVERYONE and covers an exciting and varied repertoire. Whether you like to play an instrument, play in a band or sing in a choir, there is room for you to explore, discover and express your musical tastes. There is a great diversity of talent and interest amongst our students at Mosman High with some representing the school at regional, state and international level.
In 2018 there will be three choirs and six instrumental ensembles made up of students from Years 7-12 who rehearse weekly. The program is designed to provide a variety of experiences and extend talented students in addition to the classroom music lessons. This includes performing at school concerts, competitions, local music festivals, the Sydney Opera House as well as regional and overseas tours.
