EVERYONE CAN SING - Parish Junior Choir Initiative
How would you like your child to join a Choir led by a professional Choir Master with years of experience, Daniel Younan?
We hope to begin a Parish Choir next term (Term 3) for all those children Years 1 – 5 who love to sing and love to perform.
We will have a “come along and see what we have to offer” afternoon on Tuesday 27 July, Term 3.
If you would like to join up after this we will have registrations forms both hard copy and online for you to complete. There will be a registration fee of $50 per Term, which will go towards both Daniel and his organists time as well as sheet music.
What will be the benefits of joining this choir?
Come along once a week for 90 minutes practice and learn to be an accomplished singer
Perform for special occasions within the Parish, Perform for your peers and parents
