BREAKING NEWS: we now have a SEVENTH YAV choir! Due to the popularity and success of the Junior Choir we are adding another choir for 5-7year olds which will run parallel to the current Junior Choir on a Thursday evening from 4.30-5.45 also with Glenni.
Please let the office know which option suits you for rehearsal times or complete this online poll: http://doodle.com/c3xswapnsiykhvxg
The new choir will begin in week 7, Thursday 4th September.
Dear YAV Community,
On behalf of the YAV Board I would like to thank the many choristers and their families and friends who supported our major fundraiser, a Bingo Night earlier this month.
Many thanks to our sponsors, prize donors, our talented bingo caller Matt Winefield and everyone who braved the chilly Front Hall at Kent Town to get into the spirit of all things BINGO!
All funds raised during this event contribute towards maintaining a rewarding, unique choral experience for our children. YAV is dedicated to providing excellent tuition and dynamic performance experiences and like most not for profit community groups, we need to fundraise to continue to make our YAV dreams a reality.
Throughout the year we offer mini fundraising ventures, e.g. raffle tickets, wine offers, etc and a mid year social event/fundraiser.
If you would like to be part of the organising committee to help coordinate a fun, fund and friendraiser for next year, please contact me on 0431 441 579 or firstname.lastname@example.org
With just a little forward planning we could create a fabulous, family event for all to enjoy.
YAV, Board Member
Dear Junior Choir and Parents
A BIG WELCOME back to all parents and Junior Choristers! I hope you have all had a relaxing and safe holiday.
I wish to congratulate the Junior Choristers for their outstanding performance at our recent Mid-Year Concert. All songs were delivered with a high level of polish and all members are to be congratulated for their focus, beautiful singing including harmonies, attention to detail (including hair and costume), high levels of enthusiasm, great audience manners and sharp choreography!
I also wish to congratulate parents and choristers on their excellent attendance at rehearsals last term. This wonderful commitment from you is a key factor in enabling us to sing our very best! So – a heartfelt THANK YOU to you all!
This Semester, we will continue to concentrate on good voice production, excellent diction, developing good breathing techniques, becoming confident at singing harmonies and enjoy the challenges of solo singing.
We will continue practicing taa (1 sound on a beat), titi (2 sounds on a beat) and zah (no sound on a beat) in Musicianship, and further foster an excellent sense of pitch through singing, quizzes and games.
Dates for Semester 2 – more details will follow nearer the time.
- Sunday 26 October 2pm Adelaide Sings at St David’s Anglican Church, 484-496 Glynburn Rd, Burnside
- Saturday 22 November Norwood Christmas Pageant
- Sunday 30 November 3.30pm Combined Choirs Festive Concert St Peter’s Cathedral
Wishing you blessings for the Term ahead!
Yours in Song
