Young Sudbury Singers, a local choir for children and youth, is inviting children age 8-12 to register for its new Valley East Choir.
Rehearsals will be every Tuesday evening from 6 to 7 p.m. at Valley View Public School, from March 24 to April 28.
Participants will engage in a variety of musical games and exercises over the six weeks, learning simple unison songs in a safe and supportive environment that will foster a lifelong love of singing.
The Valley East Choir will have an opportunity to perform with Young Sudbury Singers' three existing choirs in a community concert featuring local folk musician Duncan Cameron.
The concert will be held on Sunday, April 26 at 2 p.m., in the Sheridan Auditorium at Sudbury Secondary School. The choirs will also give a free lunch-hour concert at the Living with Lakes Centre on Friday, May 1.
Valley East Choir Director Heather Charsley is the music teacher at C.R. Judd Public School in Capreol, and also directs the YSS Senior Choir. She brings a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to YSS, and is looking forward to working with our newest singers, said a press release.
YSS intends to offer a full-season Valley East Choir starting in September 2020, along with its downtown-based Beginner Choir (SK-Grade 2), Junior Choir (Grade 2-4) and Senior Choir (Grade 5+).
“This is an excellent opportunity for children to sing with us for a few weeks this spring to see what the choir has to offer,” the press release said.
Young Sudbury Singers has kept our registration fees low so that the choir remains accessible to all youth in the community. The fee for this six-week introductory program is just $50 per child, or $75 for two children in the same family.
