Sunday 7 May

Adelaide Harmony Choir 70th Anniversary Gala Concert

Venue:                         Elder Hall (North Terrace, Adelaide)

Kiss & Drop:            12:00pm at the front of Elder Hall (North Terrace, Adelaide), driving east, towards the old RAH.  Look out for the YAV volunteers with YAV caps and Hi-Vis vests.  Kiss & Drop means you do not need to find a park around the venue – your children will be dropped off with the YAV volunteers and walked to the venue.

Stage Rehearsal:   12:30pm in Elder Hall

Concert:                     2pm in Elder Hall

Collection:                3pm on the grass in the front of Elder Hall

Repertoire:                When I Close My Eyes

Green Eggs and Ham

Costume:                 

All our YAV uniforms are designed to be youthful, age specific and are all about our choristers looking natural and drawing attention to their beautiful singing faces.  This is why we’re so specific about hair, no jewellery, ribbons, nail polish etc.  If your child is new to the choir and you have any questions about the below requirements, please contact the Choir Office.

  • Yellow YAV T shirt – purchase from YAV Choir Office
  • Plain Black long pants – No leggings, or tracksuits, no stripes/colour
  • Black socks (yes these are absolutely important)
  • Black polished shoes – no sneakers
  • Hair worn off face – use bobby pins if needed and no coloured ribbons or hair ties
  • No jewellery, or nail polish – if you have newly pierced ears, your studs/sleepers need to be covered with skin-coloured bandaids/tape.

 

What to bring:        Named water bottle, healthy snack (no nuts or popcorn), a quiet game for the break.

Volunteers:              We are looking for 4 parent volunteers, for both Kiss and Drop and to be guardians during the concert.   Please contact the choir office (choiroffice@yav.asn.au) if you would like to assist.

 

Have a great Easter break and we will see you in term 2!

Best wishes,

Glenda Lynelle (Tutor) & Christie Anderson (YAV Artistic Director)
