50th Birthday Year

What began in 1972 as a provider of music education with classes run out of a local church building in the mall, the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music has become an icon of the community. To celebrate, we have planned some exciting cornerstone events to showcase the amazing talent of our people – our students, staff, and alumni. Please join us for our 50th birthday year.

Flame Tree Project

The Flame Tree Project choir will provide children of the Illawarra with the opportunity to develop and perform original compositions that connect to where we live. The choir will learn and perform new songs by Australian composers together with Kate Whitworth and a choreographer over two weekends in Term 2 2022 at WollCon, before performing to the community throughout the year.

Combined Schools Instrumental Festival

The Combined Schools Instrumental Festival brings together hundreds of public school students from Helensburgh to the Shoalhaven, aged between 6-18 years to perform in a large-scale production for the local community.

WollCon Megaband

The WollCon Megaband is a massive band of more than 150 instrumentalists ranging in age from 9 to 18 years with different levels of experience. Musicians spend a day “jamming” together, learning some new music under the direction of Eric Dunan, and then present a concert in the evening with a special guest musician.
