Academy of the Arts – Honours Program

Schools at Queensland Conservatorium

Over fifty students have represented Citipointe at the State Honours Ensemble Program throughout 2023. Griffith University runs a top musical program featuring the best school students in South Queensland. Those selected display a high level of musical talent, experience, and potential.

The programs took place at the Brisbane Conservatorium at South Bank. Students rehearsed over a weekend and learned valuable new skills to bring back to their school ensembles and programs. Citipointe students actively participated in and contributed to the engaging and entertaining finale concerts. At school, students received certificates acknowledging their participation. Well done to all of those involved.
