New! The Joan Kids Chorus

The Joan Kids Chorus is a new and exciting course at Penrith Conservatorium in 2017. Designed for primary school aged children in Years 3 to 6, the young choristers will have fun as they develop their skills through warm ups and technical exercises, fun songs and rounds as well as learning a diverse range of repertoire.

New! Exclusive Penrith Conservatorium Student Discounts


Here at Penrith Conservatorium we believe music education is most effective when participants combine their individual tuition and group learning with regular attendance at high quality performances. That’s why this year we’ve put together an incredible offer to make it possible for you to come to the outstanding professional music concerts that are on here at The Joan in 2017.

As a student of Penrith Conservatorium you can get two tickets to any of The Joan’s 2017 Summit (Fine Music) and Piazza (Sunday Sessions) concerts for just $15 per ticket!

For some of the concerts that’s a saving of $50 per ticket off the concession price. Because it’s such a great offer there are a couple of conditions to be aware of:
1. You can book a maximum of two tickets per concert and at least one of the two people attending must be a student of Penrith Conservatorium.
2. There are limited numbers of tickets available at this price for some of the concerts, so get in quick.
3. There is a booking fee of $4 per transaction (except if paying by cash at box office).
4. You can book online (using the code that was emailed to you in the Term 1 Conservatorium E-News – if you don’t have the code please contact Conservatorium Coordinator Claire Harvey), in person or by phoning our box office on 4723 7600
