SC Orchestra and Band Festival

The SCST "Simphonia" National Band & Orchestra Festival has been a great success since its inception in 2018, with hundreds of school students meeting to showcase their musical talent through participation and healthy competition. Owing to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, cultural – and particularly music-performance – opportunities have dried up, placing the future of orchestras in jeopardy. The Simphonia Festival and Competition provides a safe platform to redevelop orchestral and band programmes. The festival is a cost-effective, fun and team-building event that provides a competition with a difference: contact with the music of other orchestras, sightseeing, hotel accommodation, concert-participation and much more.
