Performances and events

Performances

The Conservatorium has an exciting, vibrant and diverse annual events calendar featuring some exceptionally talented performers, teachers and scholars.

Enabling us to showcase the skills and talents of our music, theatre and multimedia students and staff as well as visiting stars and touring performing artists, the Conservatorium hosts approximately 100 performances each year on CQUniversity's campuses. These performances range from full musical theatre productions to drama productions and plays, children's theatre, jazz performances, recitals, concerts, art and media exhibitions, seminars and community events.

Supported by the Conservatorium Friends, our events program makes an important contribution to the local community and provides a professional platform for students to perform in public while they are preparing for a career in the performing arts. It also provides opportunities for staff and visiting artists to perform to supportive and appreciative audiences.
