Instrumental music program

Welcome to the Sydney Secondary College instrumental music program

The Sydney Secondary College Instrumental Music Program (SSC IMP) is a large music performance program that combines students across each of the three campuses- Leichhardt, Balmain, and Blackwattle Bay. The program consists of four Wind Bands, three Jazz Bands, and two String Ensembles with many students participating in multiple groups.

SSC IMP ensembles perform regularly throughout the year and all students participate in the following whole program events: The ONE Concert (Term 1), Music Camp & End of Camp Concert (Term 2), IMP Showcase at The Sydney Conservatorium of Music- Verbrugghen Hall (Term 3), and the End of Year Concert (Term 4).

Movement through the program is based on merit and students are invited each year to audition for placement in upper ensembles. SSC IMP ensembles regularly achieve top awards at the annual Australian School Band and Orchestra Festival and many students extend themselves by being involved in the state-wide Arts Unit ensemble programs.
