School Spectacular 2013

The 30th anniversary of Schools Spectacular, showcasing 3600 of the most talented singers, dancers and musicians in New South Wales public schools, will be broadcast for the first time on Channel Nine next week.

Hosted by musical maestro and former Schools Spectacular performer John Foreman, the Schools Spectacular is a world-class arena production and one of the largest annual events of its calibre anywhere in Australia. It is renowned both for producing national and international stars – such as Human Nature, The McClymonts, Jack Vidgen and Paulini- and promoting inclusiveness and reconciliation.

An extensive audition process is carried out across the state to assemble a 1300-voice choir, 80-piece orchestra, 2000 dancers, and talented soloists from the age of five to 18. They will feature in the dazzling display of music, dance and pageantry across categories including Aboriginal Dance Ensemble, D’Arts Ensemble (formerly known as Disability Dance Ensemble), Ballet and Tap Ensembles, and Boys Hip Hop Ensemble.

The show will also feature performances by Darren Percival and Diana Rouvas, both former Schools Spectacular performers who found fame on The Voice.

The Schools Spectacular combines students of all ages, cultures, skill sets and performance backgrounds and offers them the opportunity for further growth through a rich and rewarding program. It is a unique opportunity for students who attend NSW public schools and highlights the talent, commitment and optimism of our youth who create a memorable experience for us all.

Saturday, November 30, at 7.00pm on Nine.
