Malmsbury Primary School pupils are eagerly preparing for their time to shine at Hisense Arena.
The school’s singing ensemble is the Macedon Ranges’ only representative in the Victorian State Schools Spectacular, which will feature 3000 performers from more than 200 schools.
The Malmsbury pupils will star in the mass choir, marking the school’s third year of involvement in the annual state production.
Sunbury Primary School is also getting ready to perform in the mass choir for its fourth consecutive appearance in the show. The large-scale production requires pupils to rehearse for up to six months before the event.
Malmsbury Primary School principal Carolyn Tavener said the pupils were starting some “really big days” of catching the train to Melbourne to rehearse.
Ms Tavener said the students were looking forward to the two performances on September 16.
“They are so excited – they can’t wait,” she said.
She described the spectacular as “extraordinary”.
The show’s 2017 theme, “Anything is Possible”, explores creativity, freedom of expression and self-empowerment.
The music ranges from a Spice Girls song to a rendition of John Farnham’s You’re The Voice.
