ITINERANT CONCERTS NEXT TERM

It’s great to see all the students learning music and making such great progress. A reminder that next term ALL itinerant students will have the chance to perform over the course of a series of small concerts. Watch this space for more info and in the meantime make sure you and your tutor have chosen a performance piece (either solo or small group) and get practicing!


THE CHRISTCHURCH BOY’S CHOIR

The Christchurch Boys’ Choir is an auditioned choir made up of boys with treble (unbroken) voice from all schools around the city. We provide boys with opportunities to perform in a choir of a high standard and also to tour around the country, performing in many remarkable venues.
We are auditioning for the choir on Wednesday 28th September from 2:30pm at STAC and are reaching out to all schools in the Christchurch community to provide boys with the opportunity to audition. Any boys who want to audition need to email me at musicaldirector@christchurchboyschoir.co.nz to book an audition time. If you could forward this information on to music teachers or into the school notices, that would be much appreciated.
Regards,
Angus Simmons
Music Director
