The NSSWE Spring Music Festival
Come and join us
The NSSWE Spring Music Festival is an annual event held over four days at the Concourse in Chatswood in September.
It is designed to give ensembles the opportunity to experience and perform in a professional venue in a non competitive environment. The event is open to symphonic wind ensembles and stage bands from primary through to senior high school levels, from public and private schools in the Sydney region.
Detailed information regarding the 2019 Festival can be found HERE.

Why join in
The NSSWE Spring Music Festival is a celebration of musical expression, designed to give your ensembles the rare opportunity to inspire, and to be inspired, and to experience the joy of a pure performance rather than a competition in front of a supportive audience.
The Festival is open to ensembles of all ability levels from training bands to high calibre high school bands.
There are 3 types of performances:
1. Concert Hall Performances: Symphonic Wind Ensembles and Bands

- Friday 13 September 7pm
- Saturday 14 September 11am, 2.30pm and 7pm
- Sunday 15 September 1pm and 6.30pm

They are evening performances held over a week and attract local school bands looking to perform in a non-competitive environment in front of a large supportive audience.
There is no participation fee for bands performing at these concerts and audience entry is by gold coin donation on the night.
