Term 2 Bulletin

Dear Junior Choir Parents


A BIG welcome back to all Junior Choir members! And we heartily welcome our NEW Chorister – Lola Storer!


The children’s enthusiasm is contagious and we are singing with a lovely tone, very good pitch and good diction. We are also attempting some harmony work in warm-ups, rounds and hopefully a harmony in one of our concert songs!


It is important that your child attends rehearsals regularly as this will support our goal of presenting our best choral work.


Our rehearsals this term will focus strongly on our songs for our Mid-Year Concert –

“A Winter Mosaic”- Sunday 19 June at 3.00pm at Elder Hall.

More details to follow regarding this event.

Repertoire to learn and know:

  • The Swine Song

  • Yellow T shirt with choir logo
  • Black dress pants – (no leggings or track pants)
  • Black socks and black dress shoes (no sneakers or shoes with coloured trim)

  • Hair to be worn off face

Please see the Front Office to organise your children’s performing outfit for this concert and ensure it is a good fit.


DVD/PIZZA NIGHT will be on Wednesday 22nd June during our normal rehearsal time. We will review our performance through sharing and watching a DVD, and will celebrate with Pizza. Please bring $5 for 2 pieces of pizza and a drink.

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

Photography Tour Fundraiser

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


Filming/photographing choirs

23 Mar

Dear Parents

Please find below a reminder about filming and photographing choristers/choirs.

The all-encompassing smart phone and the ease of internet use has changed many laws in regards to filming children unless authorised.

Young Adelaide Voices do not permit parents/audience members to photograph, video or record performances or rehearsals for several reasons but mainly because:

  • It is distracting for the choristers and their conductors – if a chorister is watching someone who is filming and/or taking pictures then they are NOT watching their conductor
  • There needs to be protection for children from potential exploitative photography/recordings
  • As per our enrolment form, not all parents have given consent for their child to be photographed

YAV employs a professional firm to film one of our annual concerts. This organisation has an APRA License (Australasian Performing Rights Association), so there is no risk of anything untoward being released on any public forums. These DVD’s are available to purchase through the office.

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

Kind regards

Anthea Charlton

Choir Coordinator
