Children’s Choir: Taster Sessions
Fri 15 June, 4.00 pm - 5.15 pm
After many months of planning and preparation, Holy Trinity Church, Aberystwyth, is launching its new children’s choir.
Acclaimed musician, Dr Andrew Cusworth, is helping to establish the choir, and will be directing its musical curriculum with the help of other experienced musicians. The children will sing a wide variety of music, and will follow the internationally recognised Royal School of Church Music Voice for Life award scheme.
This is a structured, multi-level, course, which helps children to demonstrate increasing knowledge and understanding of music as their voices and skills develop, and for which awards are presented annually at the RSCM West Wales Area Choirs Festival Service, usually held in St Davids Cathedral.
Our aim for the future is for the children’s choir to be able to perform in special services and events, both within and beyond the Church, and that it will contribute to services on a monthly basis.
Sessions will run every Friday, 4-5.15pm, for the duration of the summer, with a break for the Bank Holiday week, re-starting on 7th September.
All children aged 7-11 years, of all faiths or of none, are welcome to come along, whether they are complete beginners or already know they enjoy singing, and the choir’s rehearsals will be held bilingually (in Welsh and English).
The subscription for this will be £5 per session, with a discount for those who pay in full, in advance, for blocks of sessions (financial help is available for those who have interested children but who may have difficulty finding the funds).
