At Turramurra Public School, all our students are encouraged to sing, and they sing beautifully! Turramurra Public school choirs are amongst the top in NSW, with a reputation for choral excellence.
Each student in Years 3-6 is welcome to participate in our year group choirs, which rehearse with our music teacher, Miss Kiralee Strahle, during lunchtime and before school each week. Our Years 3-6 choirs are not auditioned, so everyone has the opportunity to come along and sing.
We are proud to have the following group choirs at TPS:
Turra3 – Year 3 Choir (Tuesday lunchtime)
Turra4 – Year 4 Choir (Thursday lunchtime)
Turra5 – Year 5 Choir (Monday lunchtime
Turra6 – Year 6 Choir (Wednesday lunchtime)
TurraSingers – Auditioned vocal ensemble (Friday before school)
Students from each choir represent TPS at state, regional and local choral festivals including Primary Proms, Festival of Children’s Music, ArtsAlive Choral Festival, Festival of Choral Music and Schools Spectacular. Such events provide students with the opportunity of performing at fabulous venues such as Chatswood Concourse, Sydney Town Hall and Sydney Opera House.
Additionally, we have our brilliantly renowned TurraSingers ensemble. TurraSingers are our elite, auditioned group who are regularly invited to perform special item performances in major choral festivals at venues such as Sydney Opera House, as well as regional, local community and school events. In 2016, TurraSingers had their debut performance at Sydney Eisteddfod and were Highly Commended on their performance.
