The group meets once a month to plan and coordinate social and fundraising activities and assist with College music events. They also provide a point of contact for parents of music students and it is a great opportunity for bringing together like-minded parents whose daughters share an interest in music and performance.

All parents are invited to participate in this group and can contribute by attending the monthly meetings, donating prizes for fundraising activities and assisting at Music department events.

Music Department Events

The group also help to organise or run many events. Their assistance at the Mid-Year Concert, Music Night, Senior Extension Recitals, QCMF, Music Camp, Trivia Night, Inter-House Music Festival and Music Breakfast is a vital part of the success of music at Loreto.


Financial Support

The considerable financial support generated by the group’s fundraising efforts each year allows the Music department to:

  • Pay for specialist conductors for extra ensembles;
  • Fund music scholarships that both assists some students to excel in their chosen instruments and encourages others to try instruments for which we have need;
  • Purchase expensive instruments whose presence benefits the entire program through their use in a variety of ensembles (eg. Xylophone, Drum Kit, Baritone Sax and Double Bass).
