A community of musicians

The best way to be engaged in any activity is to share it with others. By joining an ensemble, students are joining a community of musicians. They make friends, share the joy of making music together and peer teach each other. Within an ensemble, students make friends with like-minded musicians and forge deep, long lasting relationships.

A variety of string ensembles, vocal ensembles and bands are available for our young musicians to participate in according to their stage of musical development.

These ensembles include:


  • Mezzo Voce – all girls in Years 4 - 6
  • Fella Voce – all boys in Years 4 - 6
  • Poco Voce – all students in Years 2 - 3
  • Piccolo Voce – a cocurricular choir for Years 2 - 3 students
  • Bella Voce – a cocurricular choir for Years 4 – 6 students (repertoire is more challenging than Mezzo and Fella Voce choirs)
  • Con Brio – a cocurricular choir for Years 7-12 students


  • Burgundy Band – elementary standard band
  • Gold Band – intermediate standard band
  • Percussion Ensemble
  • Platinum Band – advanced standard band
  • Pizzicato Strings – elementary standard string ensemble
  • Allegro Strings – intermediate standard string ensemble
  • Cantabile Strings – advanced standard string ensemble

Final ensembles are dependent on student demand, which is reviewed each year.

Performance opportunities are provided to these ensembles throughout the year. St Peters Springfield ensemble students take part in Eisteddfod’s, the St Peters community showcase and special events for the broader community.

Band Camp

Each year, students have the opportunity to participate in the St Peters Band Camp. This is an intensive developmental opportunity culminating in a performance for families and friends in the state-of-the-art Performing Arts Centre (PAC) at St Peters Indooroopilly. St Peters Springfield students also have opportunity to be a part of the St Peters Indooroopilly Ensembles, granting them the opportunity to participate in local and international tours.
