USQ will be filled with the sound of music when more than 3000 primary and secondary school students take part in the Today’s Youth in Music Education (TYME) Festival tomorrow (Thursday, September 14).

Performances from string ensembles, concert and stage bands, junior and senior choirs and many more will entertain attendees across seven stages from 10am to 2pm.

USQ Vice-Chancellor Professor Geraldine Mackenzie said the TYME Festival was a unique opportunity that brought together thousands of young people to celebrate various forms of music with some of the state’s leading educators in the field.

“This year’s TYME Festival offers a kaleidoscope of activities where many of the rising stars from our music education programs are given an opportunity to learn with the best and be part of ensembles where experimental performance is encouraged and supported,” she said.

“I know TYME will be a fun day and whether the students are in a rock, concert or stage band, orchestra or choir, there will be something for everyone to take out of the day.”

The festival is run by the Department of Education and Training with support from USQ.
