ABOUT THE GROUP
Hunter Trebles comes under the umbrella of Hunter Singers, the highly successful regional choir which has been operating for the past 25 years. Many members of the group have successfully auditioned to be part of Hunter Singers when they go to high school. Hunter Trebles aims to provide students in government primary schools with the opportunity to sing in a quality vocal ensemble. Students learn to sing in a fun environment where their talents are nurtured.
Hunter Trebles performs three major concerts a year as part of the Hunter Singers Subscription Concerts. In addition to this, they participate in the Primary Choral Concerts at the Sydney Opera House, a Schools Tour and the King Edward Park Carols By Candlelight.
Hunter Trebles is subsidised by the Department of Education and Communities and the fees represent very good value for the minimal cost of $95 per term. Uniforms are $90, including three performance T-shirts and performance pants.
HOW TO APPLY
