Young Voices of Macedon Online!


Like so many organisations Young Voices of Macedon are currently unable to rehearse in the usual way. So we are taking the choir online. The photo shows Gisborne children of the Barnes family: Josie, Harriet and Jude all of whom will be attending choir rehearsals at home.

Weekly rehearsals are taking place on Thursdays via Zoom, with separate sessions for the Vivos (5 – 8 yrs) and Cantabiles (9+ yrs). This allows not only continued learning, but provides a valuable opportunity for children to socialise with their chorister friends. We are also providing a range of resources: scores, backing tracks and video tutorials, we have the facility to allow children to send in audio recordings of songs and parts they have learned, and to receive individual feedback.

In this way, we are continuing to prepare for our performance of the substantial jazz cantate Captain Noah and his floating zoo, although the likelihood of performing the work as planned in October is by no means certain.

Even though our choir is not functioning as normal we are happy to receive new members. Singing is a great way to beat conaravirus blues and boredom! See our website www.yvmacedon.org.au
