A dazzling choral and instrumental music showcase featuring Australia’s premier Public Schools Instrumental Ensembles, the Combined Secondary Schools Choir and guest artist, Casey Donovan.
After a meteoric rise to fame at the age of 16, Casey became the youngest ever winner of Australian Idol in 2004. Over the last thirteen years, Donovan has made her mark not only as a musician, but also in the areas of stage, screen, presenting and writing. Casey is a multi-Award winner & nominee, including an ARIA No #1 Award for Listen with Your Heart and Deadly Awards for Best Album, Best Single and Most Promising New Talent.
Under the direction of Rhoda Roberts, Casey made her theatrical debut in Miracle In Brisbane for the Brisbane Festival. This was to be the first of many acclaimed theatrical performances, including The Flowerchildren (Magnormos), As You Like It (Company B), Opera Yarrabah (Opera Australia), The Sapphires (Company B / Black Swan State Theatre Company), RENT (Hayes Theatre) and in 2016 Donovan starred in We Will Rock You (Andrew Pole/Ben Elton) as Killer Queen. Casey’s stage credits have earned her respect from the industry, which has seen her receive a nomination for Best Newcomer and Best Performance by an Actress in a Musical in the Sydney Theatre Awards.
