YAV Performance Costume

Dear Parents

With events fast approaching for choristers in almost all of our choirs, now is a great time to check to make sure your daughter/son has the required uniform for performances, and that it fits adequately.

For Junior Choir the Performance Costume is as below:

Yellow T-Shirt – available from the office $35 new or $15 pre loved (limited quantity of pre-loved T-Shirts available)

Black Trousers – must be dress trousers and not track pants, leggings or jeans. We have a small selection of pre-loved trousers available in the office and if we don’t have a pair to fit your child we can advise where to buy

Black shoes – closed shoes such as school shoes/Mary Janes. Not trainers or canvas pumps.

Black socks

Please see me in the office to organise a performance costume

Kind regards

Term 3 Bulletin

Dear Junior Choir and Parents

A HUGE WELCOME to our new Come and Try choristers who have joined us from last week’s rehearsal. We hope you will find it a rewarding experience being a part of us!

A BIG WELCOME back to all parents and Junior Choristers!  I hope you have all had a relaxing and safe holiday.

I also wish to congratulate choristers and parents 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, beautifully rounded vowel shapes, excellent diction, developing good breathing techniques, and enjoying the challenges of solo singing. We will also be learning AUSLAN sign language for Away in a Manger!

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.

PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS A NO NUT POLICY FOR SNACKS. (Snacks need to be easy to eat and not messy – no popcorn or sticky foods please)
