Dear Junior Choir parents

As you know, we are very busy rehearsing for our Combined A Winter Mosaic Concert in Elder Hall, which is where all six choirs of Young Adelaide Voices perform individually and then together in the combined piece.

Junior Choir’s concert day details are below:


  • Choristers need to be at Elder Hall, 1 – 5.30pm
  • Kiss & Drop is available for the Juniors from 12.45 – 1pm. There will be Volunteer Choir Parents ready to collect choristers at the front of Elder Hall on North Terrace. Look out for the high visibility vests and YAV caps.
  • You will have your rehearsal onstage first, then all the choirs will come together for the combined piece.
  • The concert is from 3:30 – 5.30pm.


  • 5.40pm. Parents please collect your children from the AUDITORIUM of Elder Hall – they will grab their bags and come back to their original seats. This is different to previous years and we are aiming to avoid confusion and congestion downstairs. We appreciate your patience in this matter.As always, please be prompt collecting your child.

Term 2

5 May

Dear Parents

Our Winter Mosaic Concert will take place on Sunday 19 June (more information to follow regarding costumes and rehearsals).  The concert is earlier this year due to the 1CC tour so there will be rehearsals for two weeks following the concert before we finish for the term.

On 22 June (week 8) choristers will be watching their performance on DVD and enjoying an evening of pizza and games. This is not an optional rehearsal. It is important that all children attend as they will get the opportunity to see their performance and give and receive feed back.

In the final week, 29 June (week 9) rehearsals will be at the regular time.

There will be no choir rehearsals in week 10 of this term.

Please contact the office if you have any queries and we will be happy to help.

Kind regards







Kiss and Drop

5 May

Dear Parents

We are looking for assistance throughout the term for Kiss and Drop on a Wednesday evening.   

We require 2 parents every Wednesday from 4:30pm to 5:00pm – one parent to receive children from the car at the drop off point and the other to walk groups to the halls.

In the interest of safety no child should be walking through the car park to the halls by themselves.  The car park and laneway between the church and halls cannot be seen from the Kiss and Drop point. 

If you are able to assist, please click on the link below and tick the dates you are available.  Before you assist with Kiss and Drop you will need to call in at the office to collect the high visibility vests and the stand used at the Kiss and Drop area. 

Your help would be very much appreciated – we place high importance on the safety of your children but rely heavily on parents to volunteer as we simply don’t have the staff to man this job!! 

Thank you in advance
