At a Sydney girls School, Music Director Karen Carey prepares her young students for a concert at he Opera House. Believing in the trans-formative power of great music, Carey insists upon a Classical repertoire, sets a dauntingly high performance standard and requires the participation of every girl in the school. But not everyone shares her passion. Mrs Carey's Concert is about music making and coming of age, about talent and courage, compliance and rebellion. About those prepared to open their minds and hearts to what the world has to offer ... and those yet to discover the potential within.

A great, uplifting film about passion and learning
11 March 2011 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

A great film with which to launch the 2011 Adelaide film festival, Bob Connolly and Sophie Raymond managed to capture the struggles of a headstrong and brilliant music teacher with equally headstrong students, on a journey towards a daunting and ambitious concert at the Sydney Opera House. We follow multiple characters through 18 months of preparation and hard work, but a single failure on anyone's part will jeopardise the whole effort.

This is a great film about ego, passion, learning and commitment.

Bob Connolly's masterful camera work and Sophie Raymond's gorgeous sound recording bring this story to life with an impressive intimacy.
