  • We aim to inspire, nurture, educate and motivate our singers.
  • We believe everyone can benefit from singing in a choir. We endeavor to foster a love of
    choral music through the rehearsal and performance of a wide variety of choral music from
    all genres and cultures. Through exciting opportunities, we aim to support artistic growth
    and a greater appreciation of music and the arts.
  • Through our carefully sequenced choral curriculum, we aim to develop the natural voice in a
    supportive environment that encourages teamwork, good communication and self-esteem.

  • The training of boys and girls in choral singing.
  • The promotion of excellence in performance.
  • The development of a life-long love of music and joy in singing.
  • The nurturing of friendships and strong sense of community in a happy and safe environment
    where young people develop singing and ensemble skills, independence, and are proud to
    learn, perform, socialise and flourish.
  • Developing aural and sight-singing skills, correct vocal techniques and an understanding of
    musical notation.

  • Regular attendance at rehearsals. This is of utmost importance as our repertoire becomes
    more complex.
  • Being available for performances. We will notify performance dates well in advance so these
    dates can be added to your busy diaries.
  • Appropriate behavior and listening attentively at rehearsals and performances.
    Inappropriate and disruptive behavior hinders learning and will not be tolerated.
  • Being responsible for keeping music safe and organised. Original copies are provided most
    of the time and are collected when finished with. Please bring music every week.
  • Having fun and loving to sing with new friends!!!
