Surround Sound is a band competition coordinated by the NSW Department of Education’s Arts Unit, for students of secondary schools in rural and remote areas. School bands are invited to perform covers or originals in any style of contemporary music. Finalists participate in a workshop with an industry mentor before performing in the final competition rounds in November at SpecFest, staged on the Qudos Bank Arena forecourt.

Create NSW is offering a unique opportunity for schools who enter the Surround Sound competition to be a part of Make Music Day celebrations through the Make Music Day prize draw.

As part of the annual Make Music Day Celebrations on June 21 schools participating in Surround Sound can upload their video to the Make Music Day website – CLICK HERE .
