Citipointe offers a wide variety of ensembles, bands, choirs and orchestras. These groups are led by experienced and professional directors with a passion for excellence in music. Through rehearsals and performances, Citipointe students develop their creativity and talents, while productions provide real-life experience in collaborating with the various arts genres within the College.

As part of the Academy of the Arts, students receiving music tuition are required to be in an ensemble. This allows students the opportunity to work towards performances and increases motivation to practice and work towards learning outcomes.

The ensembles are involved in various performance and rehearsal opportunities throughout the year, both at the College (Primary assemblies, performance concerts) and externally (festivals, eisteddfods, Musicfest, camps). These are wonderful opportunities for students to develop their skills and further enjoy the many benefits of music-making.
