Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the number of performers and audience members will be more limited than previous years, with each family limited to two tickets. Kurrajong performers will be seated with their family during the performance. Performing students do not require a ticket and will not be counted in their family’s allocation of tickets. Tickets will not be available at the door, so please book early. Tickets may be purchased at TryBooking for $10 adults and free for non-performing students.

Instrumental Music program

We have a limited number of vacancies in Term 4 for classical guitar, trombone, flute, clarinet, saxophone, double bass and bass guitar. Enrolments for Term 4 must be received by Monday 7 September. If you are interested in learning more about the Instrumental Music Program, please visit the Instrumental Music section of the School website or contact Ali O’Connell, Performing Arts Assistant, on 8216 5526.


On Thursday 20 August, the Performing Arts faculty hosted the AHOMINGS (Heads of Music in Independent Schools SA) annual general meeting in the Middle School building and the new Nicholls Performing Arts building. Special thanks to Ali O’Connell, Kelly Martin, Desiree Le Francois, Mark Bourchier, Michael Nielsen and Liam Ryan for supporting us through the day. Special thanks also to Cameron Bacholer who addressed the group and reflected how important music programs are to schools and their students.

It was wonderful to see how impressed our fellow music colleagues were with the new Middle School and Nicholls buildings. The Performing Arts at Pulteney is now in an excellent position with still more growth and diversity to be achieved. I am so enthusiastic about our Performing Arts future here.
