Closing date for entries is Friday 1 July 2016. Please note: this date is the last day of the school term.

The Miles Franklin Music Festival has been running every year since 1986, and attracts more than 300 entries in the various sections.

There are separate sections for:

Solo performances, duets, trios and ensemble performances are in separate sections. The event schedule lists the age groups of the separate sections and the entry fees.

The conditions of entry should be read carefully to avoid disappointment. There are time limits for performances that depend on age, and rules on copyright which must be observed. A photocopy of the music is needed by the adjudicator which will be destroyed after the festival.

The emphasis in the Festival is to encourage participation by children, rather than emphasizing competitiveness. It gives children an opportunity to practise and work towards a public performance. All students receive a participation certificate in recognition that it is the performance that is most important.

All sections are adjudicated except for the guitar and guitar-with-voice sections, and prizes in the form of ribbons are awarded. Adjudicators provide a written report, pointing out the strengths of the performance, and encouraging further improvement.

The School Canteen is open during the Festival for tea and coffee, cakes or for a meal.

The Festival is run by volunteers from the School community and friends.

After reading the conditions of entry, you can enter children in the next Festival. After entries have been finalized, copies of the program will be emailed to people who have entered through the website. Printed copies of the program will be available from the School and during the Festival.
