Term 3/4 Update


Springtime is proving to be a time of exciting performances for Young Voices of Macedon, a children’s choir that is also enjoying a rapid growth of membership. The choir was honoured to be included in the concert Athol Guy and Friends, firstly as the curtain-raiser, then actually singing 3 iconic songs – Morningside ride, Georgy girl and The carnival is over with the Seekers. This was a huge thrill for the children, parents and especially grandparents!

Forthcoming performances include the confirmation service of 2 of our choristers, Charlotte and Edward Teed at the Church of the Resurrection, Macedon, when the choir will sing anthems by John Rutter and Jill Galina. Our annual concert Upstage! on 28 October comprises a feast of choral music from musicals, opera and movies by composers including Mozart, Offenbach and Tim Minchin.

Following the resignation of Assistant Conductor Emma West, the choir has been delighted to appoint Andrew Price as Emma’s replacement. With a very strong background in choral and orchestral performance, Andrew is Assistant Conductor of the Melbourne choir Men in Suits. Recently he also formed the Woodend Warblers, a choir for adults of limited musical experience.

New members will be welcome to join from early November, when preparations for Christmas performances commence.
