It’s a busy month for former Australian Idol musical director John Foreman, who is back to host the Schools Spectacular, the world’s largest youth variety extravaganza.
The massive event took place in Sydney on the weekend.
Now in its its 26th year, it has more than 3,000 public school students aged 5 to 19 on display in a show of colour, movement and music.
With talent from right across NSW, it combines a 1,000 voice choir, 1,800 dancers and an 80-piece symphony orchestra, with foyer performers, Aboriginal and all-male dance ensembles, and more than 40 featured artists.
“It’s an incredible event, a magical night of entertainment and an amazing, uplifting night of television,” he said.
Foreman is also expected to return for Carols by Candlelight, to air on Nine.
It airs 7:30pm Sunday, 13 December 2009 on ABC1 and is repeated on ABC2 at Sunday, December 20 at 7:00pm.
