The Australian Combined Schools Music Festival (ACSMF) brings together the finest student musicians from around Australia to perform together under the guidance of outstanding national and international conductors. This is a biennial festival and in 2023, the 22nd ACSMF will be hosted by the first West Australian school, Methodist Ladies’ College. The three-day festival will culminate in a gala concert with performances featuring our combined Concert Band, Orchestra and Choir. In addition, there will be an Australian premiere of a commissioned work for our combined Primary Choir.
ACSMF is a consortium of schools with highly developed music programmes that have created an opportunity for music students to perform repertoire at the highest possible level. For the first time in its 50-year history it will be hosted in Western Australia. This is an opportunity for Perth to put its best foot forward and to showcase what our students are capable of doing and we invite other well established music programmes to become partner schools and participate with us in providing this opportunity.
