Combined rehearsals were held over a four-day period at Mercedes College in August, giving students the opportunity to sing together prior to their performance in the festival.
More than 2000 students from 83 Catholic schools will go on stage during the festival, which runs from Monday September 10 to Thursday September 13 at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre Theatre.
Each evening’s concert will feature a 400-strong choir, instrumental ensembles, vocal groups and solo artists.
This year is significant in the history of the festival as it celebrates its 30th annual performance.
