It will be performed at the Schools Spectacular at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney’s Olympic Park in four shows on Friday and Saturday, November 23 and 24.

Schools Spectacular is unequalled in the world with a 2700-strong choir, 2300 diverse dancers, an 80-piece symphony orchestra, a world-class stage band and a huge number of outstanding solo performers.

This iconic cultural event engages and showcases students of varying ages, cultures, skills and socio-economic backgrounds.
