Instrumental music, choirs, bands, orchestras, ensembles, and dance and dance groups are fixtures at Northside Christian College. Performing on stage builds confidence and poise and teaches young people valuable life skills about building resilience and managing nerves.

Our students gain performance experience through the variety of opportunities that arise during the year. Each school holds weekly chapel services and assemblies, which draw on student singing, dancing, and instrumental abilities. 

Various bands, orchestras and choirs perform at events such as biennial musicals, Grandparents' Day, Graduation, and Middle and Senior School Awards Nights and many more. Secondary opportunities include the Da Vinci Festival, the lunchtime musical showcase Acoustica and The Northside Voice competition.

The Program Aims To:

  • Develop the musical gifting of the student 
  • Provide students with a wide range of musical experiences
  • Develop student’s awareness of music as an instrument of worship towards God
