Graduation Concert Information 

December 2nd (Sun) Opera House

All Cello Students come to main concert hall with wrist band

Those who do not attend will not be able to perform in the Concert. Please arrive on time to the rehearsal. We are unable to accept students earlier than their nominated Rehearsal Drop Off time.

Please make sure you know the Level your child will be performing and note the colour of their wristband.


Your teacher has been sent a wristband for every performer at the Graduation Concert. This wristband is your child’s ticket for the concert and must be worn on the left wrist from Rehearsal Drop Off.

*Please ensure your child understands that they must wear their wristband at all times throughout the day to assist in identifying them to teachers and stage management.

*Rehearsal conclusion times may vary so we appreciate your understanding and patience in this regard and we will do everything possible to ensure rehearsals start and finish on time. No student is to attend the rehearsal and concert without an adult to supervise them during the lunch break.

SECURITY at the Opera House

Due to increased security requirements at the Sydney Opera House, Patrons are advised that any bag bigger than A4 size must be left at the cloak desk. Each patron is only allowed to take 1 bag into the Concert Hall. The bag checks to get into the Opera House can lead to increased congestion before the concert, and can delay your entry into the foyer. Please allow plenty of time to go through the required bag and ticket checks before dropping off your child at their required location prior to the concert, and finding your own seating.

CONCERT TICKETS are available from the Opera House Box Office Ph: 02 9250 7777 or music/2018/40th-annual-graduation-concert.html

The concert program will be available for sale at the box office level from 11am during rehearsal time, as well as in the Main foyer before the concert. As the foyer area is

always so congested before the concert, we recommend you purchase your program during the morning rehearsals.
TRANSPORT to the Opera House – please check for rail track work if you are taking the train or for road closures that may affect your travel times.


We recommend that you pre-book a bay through Wilson Parking to secure a bay.
