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
