Last rehearsal this week

Congratulations on a fantastic performance at yesterday’s concert!

A huge thank you goes to our parent volunteers, we couldn’t run the day without you.

Our last rehearsal for the semester is this Wednesday, usual choir time. It will be a celebration of all the effort that has gone into a very busy term. Choristers will watch a video of their performance yesterday, play games and have some pizza and a drink. Please let me know if there are any particular dietary requirements-

Please bring $5 for a selection of pizza slices and a drink.

Choir rehearsals resume next term from Wednesday 26th July, which is our Come and Try night – bring your friends!

We wish you a safe and happy holidays

Something on Saturday performance

Dear Parents

We are all very excited for the Junior Choir to be performing this weekend!  Please find below some more information that you will find useful.

Choristers need to arrive at the venue at 11am.  Please look out for the YAV parents who will be wearing high vis vests and YAV caps, and will collect children and take them back stage.

Please ensure that choristers wear the full YAV uniform – yellow t-shirt, black trousers, shoes and socks.  Neat hair and no jewelry or nail polish.

Please could all choristers bring a packed lunch, a drink of water and a jumper as, weather permitting, they will picnic in Victoria Square.

Children will be able to watch the concert from the green room but will unfortunately be unable to sit with families as they are required back on stage ready for the finale at the end of the show.

Pick up time is 3:40 at the stage door on Pitt Street.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Kind regards

  • 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

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 ( if you would like to assist.
