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!

Yours in Song
