Central Coast Vocal Ensemble

Central Coast Vocal Ensemble (CCVE) is a musical extension program for students in Years 7 to 10. It is a brand-new ensemble for the Coast. This unique ensemble with a maximum of 30 singers will perform vocal works of varied genre (classical through to popular/contemporary) at a high level.  Entry to this ensemble is by audition only.
