Creative Generation showcases the best of our schools

CREATIVE Generation - State Schools Onstage began in 2005 and ever since, schools have been showcasing the amazing talents of state school students at the show, and it has become Queensland's largest youth performing arts event.

The professionally produced arena spectacular, held each year at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, attracts more than 1800 students from 115 schools throughout Queensland.

The performances feature students ranging from Prep to Year 12 with a 700-voice choir, the student James Morrison Creative Generation Big Band, a 65-piece student symphony orchestra, a massed strings ensemble, a drum core, 600 dancers, 35 featured vocalists, backing vocalists and student alumni.

Gympie has been involved from the start when a small number of students from Gympie West State School took part in the first CGEN.

It expanded in 2009 with the establishment of the Gympie Regional Combined State Schools Choir filled with students from schools in the region.

The choir is continuing in that tradition and schools involved this year are James Nash State High School, Gympie State High School, Amamoor State School, Chatsworth State School, Gympie West State School, Gympie East State School, Gympie South State School, Jones Hill State School, Monkland State School and Widgee State School.
