Young Voices perform at Kyneton festival
Young Voices of Macedon were proud to be part of the Kyneton Contemporary Art Triennial Hold the circle, performing in the Kyneton Botanic Gardens along with the choir of the Kyneton Primary School. Held in the late beautiful Summer afternoon of Saturday 26 March, this event commenced under the historic bluestone bridge by the gardens with the learning and singing of a beautiful round composed by conductor Polly Christie. Both children and adults took part. Everyone then moved to the gardens where each of the choirs sang separately; then together they performed the stirring environmental song I am the earth. Seated on picnic rugs and basking in the late afternoon sun, a large audience enjoyed the short but beautifully presented programme, which was followed by a picnic meal. For our children this was a successful and very enjoyable first performance for 2022.
Young Voices are now preparing for a performance in Macedon during May and for major events later in the year. New members are very welcome to join either the Vivo group (5–8 years) taught by Jess Demare or the Cantabile group (9+) taught by Polly Christie. Repertoire features fun songs, but there is also a strong commitment to providing youngsters with quality music education through choral singing.
Rehearsals take place at the Norma Richardson Hall, Buckland Street, Woodend on Thursdays during term time from 4.15 to 5.45 pm. For further information visit www.yvmacedon.org.au.
