Fanfare is the biennial statewide festival of bands and orchestras from Queensland state schools. It showcases the exciting music-making that occurs in school-based ensembles across the state. The emphasis for Fanfare is on improving the quality of ensembles, promoting the highest possible standard of performance, striving for excellence and encouraging participation.
Fanfare consists of regional festivals which will be held from May to June 2020; regional finals to be held in June 2020; and a state grand final to be held on 24 and 25 August 2020.
Through the regional finals, up to 5 primary ensembles and 5 secondary ensembles will be selected to come to Brisbane to take part in the primary and secondary state grand finals.
