Festival Dates
16th - 19th August 2018 (Thursday - Sunday)

On behalf of the entire community at Villanova College, I am delighted to welcome you to the 27th annual Queensland Catholic Schools and Colleges Music Festival. Our team of dedicated volunteer staff, students and parents, along with our College administration and sponsors immensely enjoy hosting all of our friends and colleagues from across Queensland and beyond.

The past 26 years of history has seen this festival grow from a humble start in 1991 attracting a total of 12 schools and colleges delivering 43 ensembles.  By contrast the 2016 Festival ran for four days across eight separate venues, welcoming 110 schools and colleges from various locations throughout Queensland and Australia, bringing with them 536 separate ensembles with a total of over 14,000 student performances receiving comments from nationally recognised adjudicators.  It is the single-largest festival of it’s kind in the Southern Hemisphere.

If you plan to join us at the Festival, please have a look around this website for information regarding directions and maps, the street parking situation, entry fees and all sorts of details.  I’d also encourage you to download the Guest Information Sheet brochure which has important information for guests.

Thank you for your support of this important event in Catholic Education!
– Mr Michael Jones, Artistic Director
