Rising Stars - Semester Dates & Concerts

The Rising Stars Performance Platform is a unique opportunity for school aged students to showcase their musical prowess and practice their performance technique. These one-hour public concerts are presented weekly by the students during the semester and are held at 11am, 2pm, and 3pm in the auditoriums of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music each week.

The concerts are open to the public and are free to attend.


Ticket registration is no longer required but masks are once again mandatory


If you’d like to hear some talented young performers or inspire a child who is learning music, we’d love to see you there!
