Who:  Girls and boys who love to sing are invited to join us for our seventh season!  Marvellous Melody Maker songs are suitable for youth ages 7 and up whose voices have not yet changed.

What:  Learning how to sing with healthy, free vocal technique by singing appealing songs in a fun, friendly atmosphere.   Music literacy is developed from our repertoire.  This term we will go “Around the World”, learning a wide variety of folk songs, and both sacred and secular,  which we will perform at special “Family and Friends” concert April 12th.  In addition, we do perform two “Sing Outs” at various Senior Homes (during our regular rehearsal times).

There are no special uniforms to buy or rent.

Music Deposit Fee:  $30 (cash) is due first rehearsal January 29th, or you can bring it to your Pre-Season Meeting (see below).  (This deposit is refunded when music is returned in original
condition, or rolled over to the next year for returning choristers.  Chorister families are responsible for replacing lost or damaged music.)  Please provide a waterproof tote or backpack for transporting your child’s music binder (provided).  Keep a sharpened pencil in the tote, and carry a reclosable water bottle separately.

Pre-Season Meeting:  Before our first rehearsal I need to hear all new choristers to discover how I may best help their voices
develop. Please call me at 345-4552 to set up a 15 minute appointment.  Children need to come
prepared to sing “O Canada”, “Happy Birthday”, and a song of their choice (without any accompaniment).  (Note:  this is not an ‘audition’ – all enthusiastic singers will be accepted!)
