Schools Program Events

The Central Coast Conservatorium hosts two major schools events each year, Big Day Out and Band Festival.  In 2017 we also will hold Big Day IN. These events offer students an opportunity to interact with other young musicians from schools across the Central Coast region as well as providing opportunities to learn from some of the regions best teachers and conductors.

Big Day In - Saturday 2nd September 2017
Big Day In is a wonderful workshop and performance opportunity open to all members of our Schools Program community as well as young band musicians from the Coast. After Big Day Out at Lisarow High School in June 2017, we decided to run a second event on a weekend to cater for students whose schools were not able to organise attendance at the Big Day Out. Big Day In is for those who missed out, for those who want to attend the second event having enjoyed Big Day Out so much, and for all Primary and High School band musicians who are interested in an intensive one day workshop with our specialist teachers. The event will again be held at Lisarow High School, this time from 10:00am – 4:00pm (concert starting at 3:30pm) and the cost is $25 per student. Registration for this event can be done online:

Band Festival - 11 November 2017
Band Festival is a day where we celebrate the achievements of Schools Program students to family and friends. Prizes are awarded to every band. Come and support your school at this fantastic event.  Ticketing information will be available shortly. Venue: TBC.  There will be a small entry fee to cover the cost to hire the venue.

Mission Statement

We seek to inspire our Central Coast community to engage in and value music as an integral part of life through comprehensive music education and artistic endeavour.
