Last weekend Opera Queensland joined forces with Childers Festival for the second year running to facilitate a series of school and community workshops. From humble beginnings as a food and wine fair drawing 5,000 people, Childers Festival is now a major cultural event on the Queensland and Australian events calendar attracting crowds of over 50,000 festival goers annually.

This year OperaQ artists Danielle Carney, Luke Volker, Sebastian MacLaine, Ashleigh Crane and Heru Pinkasova worked with 36 students from Bundaberg State High School and a stellar group of local ladies to prepare 2 performances for the Childers Festival program.

Here’s a snapshot of the weekend from classroom workshops to colourful street parades and a picturesque performance by the lake.
