Hot Weather Policy

Following the last spate of hot weather we have reviewed our hot weather policy given that the halls are not reliably able to be cooled after several days of extreme temperatures.

Given that the temperatures inside the halls is acceptable during one or two days of 36+ we will not have a blanket cancellation policy for hot weather.

The policy now endorsed by the YAV Board states that should the decision be taken to cancel rehearsals for hot weather a notice will be placed on the individual choir blogs by 11am on the day of rehearsal. Otherwise the rehearsal will go ahead as planned.

If you have any questions please let me know.

Rehearsal tonight going ahead

Dear Junior Choir

Rehearsal and Come and try will go ahead tonight despite the heat. We have plenty of water plus the choristers will get an ice block during their break which are the coles flavoured ones: Please let one of the choir assistants know if you don’t want your chorister to have one or would like to see the packaging.

Can I also please take this opportunity to remind you that for the safety of our choristers there is no parking in the church grounds. Thank you.

We look forward to welcoming our younger choristers back to YAV!





Welcome Back to the Junior Choir in 2017

Dear Junior Choir choristers and families,


Welcome to Young Adelaide Voices 2017!  We hope you have all had a relaxing and fun break.  If you are a new or returning chorister, we look forward to music making with you this year.  We welcome back Meredith Wilson our accompanist and Angela Centofanti, our Junior Choir assistant, who also sings in Aurora.


The Junior Choir offers an excellent beginning to your child’s vocal development and choral education. Our rehearsals, framed in a fun-filled learning environment, focus on learning to sing with excellent pitch and diction.

Musical games, songs and percussion instruments are employed to practise beat, rhythm and pitch – using solfa and Kodaly methodology. Repertoire is carefully chosen to enhance choral skills and provide maximum enjoyment for both the chorister and the audience. Concerts provide a wonderful opportunity for children to practise their performing skills and stagecraft.

And the joy of meeting with new friends every week is an additional bonus!


Calendar dates for 2017:

The Junior Choir performs in YAV’s two major combined concerts each year:

Sunday 25th June – A Winter Mosaic Combined Choirs Concert

Sunday 3rd December – Combined Choirs Christmas Festive Concert

This year we are also Guest Artists at the Adelaide Harmony’s Choir’s 80th Anniversary Celebration on Sunday 7th May and will be singing in the Norwood Pageant on Saturday 25th November.


Just a reminder that rehearsals are on Wednesdays during the school term from 5pm – 6.15pm at Kent Town Uniting Church, cnr Fullarton Rd and Grenfell Street, Kent Town.  Please bring water and a healthy nut-free snack.  No popcorn please, as it gets really messy!


Please contact the Young Adelaide Voices’ Office on 8362 3885 for more details.


Yours in Song


Conductor: Glenda Lynelle          Accompanist: Meredith Wilson

Photography Tour Fundraiser

Photography Flyer.JPG

Dear Young Adelaide Voices Community:

In an effort to raise funds for the choir’s European tour, I would like to offer you, your friends, family, neighbours and work colleagues the opportunity to capture some special memories with TS Photography.

This is a great gift idea for Mother’s Day, anyone with a new baby, birthday, special milestone or an extended family photo session. Maybe you have a child who started school this year, a christening or even a wedding. Buy a $50 voucher and give them $150 toward their photo package.

I have recently had my family photographed by Tanya and am extremely impressed by the experience and quality of the photos. This is not an ordinary portrait collection, but a truly professional selection of the finest quality memories you will ever have the pleasure of purchasing.

For $50 the purchase supplies a voucher worth $150 toward the photo shoot, which goes directly to the tour fundraising account. The vouchers are available at the choir office.

Please find attached a poster that can be displayed at your workplace or appropriate place of your choosing. If anyone from your workplace wants one, you can collect them from the Choir office.

Thank you for your support.

Kind Regards

Anita Lymn
