2015 marks the very last time that the Schools Spectacular will be held in Qantas Credit Union Arena, Sydney’s entertainment centre. After 32 years, what began as an acoustic test event for the newly built Entertainment Centre has now become a highlight on the Sydney entertainment calendar, shining a spotlight on the talents of NSW public school students. This year’s Schools Spectacular will be one of the last events staged at this iconic venue and will take place on Friday 27 & Saturday 28 November.

The 2015 theme, This Is Our World, captures the dreams and hopes of young people through the medium of music and dance. As the leaders of tomorrow, our students will explore their place in the world, experience diverse cultures and excite audiences with outstanding performances.

In terms of sheer size, scale and scope, the Schools Spectacular is unequalled in the world. This iconic cultural event involves students of varying ages, cultures, skills and socio-economic backgrounds, hailing from country, metropolitan and isolated regions of NSW.

It is regarded as one of Australia’s most popular annual variety shows, and this year will feature 3,600 students from more than 400 NSW public schools: a 1,500-voice choir; 80-piece symphony orchestra; 2,000 dancers; plus rock, jazz, brass and marching bands.

The Schools Spectacular delivers outstanding, cutting-edge youth dance and musical performances. It showcases the brilliance of the most talented singers, dancers and musicians in NSW public schools and incorporates state-of-the-art sound, lighting and staging.

Schools Spectacular alumni include ‘The Voice’ 2014 winner Anja Nissen, international artists Human Nature; musical director, pianist and composer John Foreman; 2013 The Voice finalists Diana Rouvas and Darren Percival, ARIA winners Paulini and Angus and Julia Stone, musical theatre stars David Harris, Lucy Maunder, Julie Goodwin and Trevor Ashley, composer Gavin Lockley, and country singers The McClymonts, Felicity Urquhart and Darren Coggan.
