Riverina Central Choir

Riverina Central Choir consists of 2 choirs:

  • Riverina Central Choir Junior Division (Year 3 to Year 6) 
  • Riverina Central Choir Senior Division (Year 7 to Year 12) 

Talented vocal students from NSW public schools across the Riverina are nominated by their schools for selection. 

The choir holds regular rehearsals during which students receive specialist vocal and choral training and participate in various local and regional performances throughout the year.  In addition, there is the possibility of selection to participate in state events.
