We have had an overwhelming number of Year 4 to 6 students choose to join the Choir this year! It is fantastic!
Due to the dramatic number of students involved this year (100+ students!), we will be having a Piccolo (Junior) Choir and a Grande (Senior) Choir. Year 4 students will be the Piccolo Choir, while the Year 5 and 6 students will form the Grande Choir. Both groups will still rehearse on Tuesday mornings at 8am, with one group in the Music room and the other in Siena Hall or a classroom. The groups will be led by myself, Ms Carabetta, Mr Strathearn and Miss Delaney.
The Piccolo Choir will be an introduction to singing as a large ensemble, learning vocal skills and a range of songs. The Grande Choir will continue to develop their skills in singing as a large ensemble, learning different vocal parts (for example, a melody and a harmony) and exploring more challenging repertoire. Both choirs will be given performance opportunities throughout the year.
A note will be sent home with your child regarding these exciting changes. If you have any questions regarding this information, please feel free to contact me.
Yours in music,
